But back to the rain .... I had started cooking the rice for supper on the jiko outside when the heavens opened! And I mean, really opened! As the other eight ran for cover inside, shutting the doors and shutters to keep out the driving rain, I was left with a problem! While they sat crowded in the dark, with the deafening onslaught of the rain on the tin roof (and even some under the door), I ended up in the outhouse with the jiko, my haybox and a pot of rice and beans. I really shouldn't be writing this, as it goes against everything we are doing here to encourage health and sanitation, but it was desperate measures in a desperate situation, and was rather amusing!
