The New Well

We are getting ready to build a fence around our property, so that will mean closing in one of the water wells the villagers use. We will be drilling another one not far from that one, where the Chairman wants it to go. The man that does this came today to survey the area and see the best place, where there is the most water and where it is the deepest. He had a little machine that looked alot like a car battery, and wires that went out from it from two sides. One man would walk a distance and the man would yell “Stop” and then right down readings from the machine. Then he would yell “Ready” and both men with the wires and the main man would walk further down the road. He would yell “Stop” and take more readings. A crowd started to build, and whenever the man yelled ready and they started walking, the kids would yell “Stop”! It was quite funny!
