The place: southern Zambia. We’d spent the day at one of the most hideous water sources I’d ever seen.
This water was dirty.
A dog had recently drowned there, drinking water from the hole. No one knew it had happened until dog fur floated to the surface of the water. That’s when villagers poked around the bottom of the hole with a long stick and found the remains of the dog, caught under a tree root.
