I fell in sewage the other day. See I had to go to the bathroom and there are two options for me in my town. One latrine which is over a stream and you have to walk through a swampy pasture. The other option being the latrines at the school which is just a walk down the beach, but that latrine is not always an option because sometimes they lock it. Going with the for sure open latrine I head toward the stream. Taking the shortcut, I walk through people´s backyards until I come to a quebrada. Which is really a stream where all the sewage goes. It´s larger than it was last time, but since by now nature was really calling, I decided to take the plunge. And my foot went slopping into the sewage about up to my knee. Around this time, I loose my chaco so I stick my arm into the sewage as well looking for the chaco. (Cause, those things are my pride and joy). Looking for the next place to place my other foot, I just plunge it into more mud. And again, lost my other chaco. By this time, I´m pissed, I have to go to the bathroom and I´m covered in raw sewage. So frusterated I head home. My home is on the main path so everyone saw my walk of shame. And laughed.
They do like to laugh. And so I laughed to and tried to give the kids hugs.
When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.
