Water, water everywhere
Along with the new paths, we seem also to have got canals and a swimming pool when a monsoonal downpour hit us yesterday.
When the path was relaid, the excess cement powder was swept off the path onto the grass, which meant that the grass at the edge of the path died and created a ditch-like depression which filled up with water when it rained.
If that gives us a mosquito problem next, who do we offer as a blood sacrifice? The town council people, the workers who did the path or their supervisor who came and gave them directions and then retreated into the shade?
