I have trouble sleeping and I usually am awake for 2 hours in the wee hours of the morning. That is when I read my scriptures. I sit in the living room and make myself comfortable. I did this this morning and I looked down and saw on the adjacent couch RAT poop! EEK!
It rained super hard for a long time today. Everything is flooded. They have 2 foot
concrete ditches along most of the roads to channel the rain water to the ocean. But,
there is no trash pick up here and the natives throw all their trash onto the ground and
into those ditches. Freetown is a filthy town. When the heavy rains come, the trash all
floods out of the ditches and all over the roads and hill sides. The roads that join the
paved roads are all dirt and rock roads (Freetown is a rock mountain so all the roads go
up and down). With the roads being dirt and rock, the dirt and rock is flushed down
onto the pave roads and those roads are washed out. People get out with their shovels
and wheelbarrows and scoop up the dirt and rocks and haul it back up and place it back
on the washed out roads. They do this almost everyday because we are in the "rainy
season". Which really does have a great amount of rain.
