Mai’s Travelog: India-the Country Life

Living in rural India, people still have to get their daily usage of water from a common well in town. At Yoga Nikaya retreat center, 50 km outside of Bangalore, since it is brand new and we were the first test group, not all the units had running water in the shower. They had not dialed in the water tank pressure to all the cabins. So we got a little taste of “country life”, going to get our own water and bathing with one cup of water at a time. It brought back memories from my childhood in Vietnam. It also reminded me of how much water we waste in the modern lifestyle. When we have to carry and boil our own (hot) water, we use a lot less.
