along the narrow street. We went through the street to reach

we have to walk for
almost one hour to the
river to get water. But
in the village, there
were no fights for
water.
In the street where
Mama lives, there is a
toilet at one end.
Everyone in the street
uses that toilet. It is always very dirty and smells so bad. At
first, it used to make me want to vomit. At times, there is no
water. We have to take water with us. Now I am getting used to
all this. In the village, people go to the open places or fields for
toilet. The men and women go to different places.

Everyday I go to the hospital by bus to
see my mother. At first, I was too
scared to get into such crowded
buses. I was not at all used to it. I
was afraid. But now, it is not like that.
I know how to stand in line, how
much to pay for the ticket, where to
get down.
Where we stay, there is a tall
building nearby. My Mami works in
seven houses there. She washes

I found that there were many houses, one on top of another. I
