My favourite thing

My absolute favourite thing to do here is to take my nightly shower. The shower stall in my compound is just a mud wall with no roof and a pipe that drains the water outside of the compound. Because so few houses have electricity and the ones that do have few lights outside, the night's stars are incredibly clear! The combination of cool water washing off all the day's dirt and sweat, looking up at the stars, hearing Zach's church choir practice in the distance and the smell of my camp suds soap (ok im a little weird) is the best. Here the constellations are upside down (the big dipper no longer dips!), which I find really cool for some reason!
