Cold Water Tap

This is a photo I took of a cold water tap, yet it reveals a lot about life in (some) townships. It is the only tap on a property where several people live. It is situated outdoors, some 15 metres / yards from the back door. The tap has no drainage, nor does the house have drainage. Now try to work out some simple logistics: say you need to do the washing up, or would like to have a bath, or make something to drink. Supposing there is a rainstorm outside, or frost. Many people know how to live around such things as if it were second nature. See also Thaba Patshoa House.
