another day, another obstacle

To add to the raging fire that cut us off from three of our plots last week, we now have to face town-wide water restrictions for at least 30 days. If after 30 days the lakes haven’t filled up again, we’ll be rationed 5 gallons per household (ours will have seven thirsty, muddy rascals). This also means some very dry plots but we’re devising some genius ways round this.

 

So to vent our frustrations we went to an anti-fracking rally. Chants of, ‘hey ho, no frackiing Huerfano’, and my personal fave, ‘noooooo fracking’, rang around the streets of Walsenburg. To all those passerbys who shook their heads or even one who flipped the bird at us, we say, ‘frack off you fracking fracks’.interactive sports games

 

In sadder news, in a few days I’ll be leaving the internship as the US immigration control is kicking me out. Let me take this opportunity to say what a wonderful time I’ve had. It’s been a whole new experience, a whole new world. I’ve learnt as much as the West Peak is tall. And the people have been both beautiful and amazing. The Wahatoya Community Initiative will go on strong for many, many, many years to come, for sure. If anybody reads this who has entered my life in the past three months, then THANK YOU. You’re a star.

 

frack attack!
