Riding the roof with the goats

07 Apr


On our day off, on Friday we took a local bus to the Charikot, the biggest city of the district. Since the bus was full we rode on the roof with two friendly goats. The goats kept peeing and pooping all over and at some point I could not get away on time and got goat pee on my shoe.  On the way to Charikot we stopped at the local hospital to visit HajurAma. HajurAma is the Grandmother of our host family who is very sickly. The hospital was shocking, no sanitation and no technology. All of us hoped not to get sick as to not end up at that hospital. 

HajurAma ended up coming back to the village because she no longer wanted to be in the hospital. The men of the village carried her on a stretcher for 4 hours from the hospital since she could not take the bumpy bus ride. We are all praying that she does not die on us since it will be very tough for the small village.
