One economical way to buy drinking water here is in large five liter containers, but they are very difficult to pour from. We ended up spilling lots on the ground. I finally found a funnel at the open market. It’s made of tin and we bought it from the tinsmith who fashioned it, a blind man who asked the next vendor over how much change he should give us when we handed him a bill in payment. I always think of the Tin Man when I use it. And in this photo Ruth looks like Vermeer’s milkmaid.
