Quando eu era pequena e ia para a casa dos meus avós paternos no interior, eles ainda não tinha canalizações por todo o lado e a casa de banho era no quintal, eu tomava banho num alguidar de barro como o da imagem abaixo mas muito maior, e com jarros de água aquecida, eu achava aquilo muito engraçado, mas já imaginaram ser a única forma de tomar um banho?
Temos que dar valor aos nossos pequenos "luxos".
After some intense days and the lost of another family member, I went to meet a friend in Alentejo. She rented a house in the country and a simple thing like the water pump failing made us think about something very important that rarely crosses our mind. Taking things for granted. A problem in the water pump made her go back and forward to the well to get some water bottles, it's a luxury to open up a fosset and having water flowing out of it. My mistake too because as so many people I often forget that there are people in the world that do not have that luxury. To click on a button and have light, to put the dirty clothes in the washer and press a button. We have the habbit of considering it as life basics, but have you thought how lucky we are?
When I was little and stayed at my grandparents in the country, they didn't have plumming all around the house and the bathroom was on the yard, I used to take my bath in a large clay bowl like the one in the picture below only much bigger, and my grandmother would bring jars of hot water, I thought it was all very funny, but have you thought having that as the only way to take a bath?
We have to appreciate our little "luxuries".
