A Picture Postcard

Pigcawayan, North Cotabato

We had to stop to pee at a public restroom beside this mosque. There was no toilet, strictly speaking. There was a room with a hole along the wall that pee drains out of.

Children ran out of their houses to fetch us water from the only pump in the village. It was to flush our pee with because, being clumsy and insensitive people from Manila, we would not have thought to do that ourselves.
