Last night there was some excitement here. A young boy driving his donkey across the plains here to Olbalbal to buy corn was passing near the pond just below us here at Olbalbal. The pool fills with water during the rainy season providing cattle and goats with a place to drink and lasts some time into the dry season. The boy of about 12 sunk into the mud beside the pond while pausing to water his donkey, Slipping deeper and deeper into the mud he was trapped with the sticky ooze almost to his shoulders. Fortunately, people here at Olbalbal heard his cries for help and ran to pull him out.
