Water Wednesday Photo of the Day: Walking to the Well 2.23.2011

This is a beautiful scene, 2 figures walking against the silhouette of the setting sun and the red dust of the Kenyan earth.  I watched these women walk from far away, they were on their way to a well close by, but thiers is not a convenient water source that you or I might expect, they may walk as much as 30 min or more to get to a well, and this may be the second or third trip of the day.  Women and children spend countless hours everyday in places like Alale Kenya to get water, time that could be spent in education, childcare, or earning an income.
