All we drink the same water in here. What I can smell the soil is absorbing water quietly. What I can see the animals are drinking at the trough. And what I can taste a cup of hot coffee.
In my work, I have collected the cups from the villagers which they use daily. Then moulding the cups into the mud I made, with the soil and sawdust which collected from Tenna. Waiting for a rain here. Then a village will grow.
