today we didn't get many of the children to school as we had 12 hours continuous rain. In the afternoon the water was coming in to our dam with quite some speed. When you live in the desert the sound of all this water rushing over a 10 metre drop is loud and beautiful.

The dam was excavated 5 years ago and is 120 metres long, 110 metres wide and 10.5 metres deep. It stores water that we can then use throughout the year. Today so much water has fallen that it should be pretty full by the morning.

The water level in this photo is 4 metres
