Relentless Rain


It has been raining every day for the past three weeks, mostly at night, although there are occasional daytime showers.  Last night, however, it rained all night and it is still raining right now in the middle of the day.  And these are not sprinkles but a downpour that has been coming down for several hours.  There is so much water in the air that the salt in my shaker has become a viscous goo.  The rainy season is during May and June, this year with a vengeance.  We had a team of eight INFOP (Instituto de Formacion Profesional) agricultural students at the Hogar San Jose last week to help plant valeriana on the grounds and lay out future gardening spots.  They were there when our last two water tanks arrived and helped with the installation.  It was hands-on learning and right up their alley.  The final installation has unfortunately been delayed due to a missing regulator valve.  Consequently, the delivery of potable water cannot begin until the valve arrives, which I hope is soon.  For I leave on vacation June 12th and will not return to La Paz until July 3rd and I would sure like to have the system in place before my departure.
