No water, much joy

We learned on Sunday that the water in Comasagua (the entire town) was going to be turned off for four days so the leaking town water tanks could be repaired. As you can imagine, this has been a challenge to everyone, but especially to Mauricio, who keeps the Unidad de Salud clinic clean. He's been hauling barrels of water from the cistern to provide essential washing and toileting for staff and volunteers - and all our PeaceHealth volunteers, used to the sparkling clean environment of a U.S. hospital, are managing without a murmur. Well, maybe a little murmur or two - but not so you'd notice. The people are patiently taking it all in stride.

I'm going to add a second post of photos only, because the photos tell the story - especially the story of the niños encantadoros, the beautiful children of El Salvador.
