1:37:15 -so, how we make well here. a group of farmers agree to make new spring. agree your garden need one day, so agree to bring many pipes, so he goes down 200 meters, not more, water is coming. and that take about five months.
-to dig the well?
yeah. after the are digging, they bring a goat here and invite everybody because they are happy. and after we divide according to how big the garden, need how much water. and we say speing cost about for example ten pounds and we are ten person, and so each person one pound. if i have two days, then i have two pounds.
1:38:54 -digging wells is hard.
1:40:08 -when make this well? 1991. and take about 8 months. but not all day..did you work on this. I'm not. My family have a garden, but I'm not.
1:41:10 -for example I have a garden here, and another there. It's .all patchwork. All passed down from grand-grand-grand-grand-grand father. Not one land. But the new area, i can say I have all that land, because i buy that land, i make this. spring myself, it's not coming from my grandfather.
1:42:00 -that how you divide land here, by water? outside, yes. but inside it's coming from father and father.
1:42:41 to make new well -first go to gov't for license., 2-3 thousand dollars.
