I've copied a video from another blog to explain why Africans drink seawater. (here)
While at the beach on Sunday, I watched two Zulu women arrive on the beach and walk towards the sea. They each had two five-liter containers which - yes- they were going to fill with water. The blogger and photographer in me sat quite a long way away from this pair and captured them ...
Five liter water containers (or any other container of that size) is popular for this task
First the ladies approached the waves and watched...
...gauging when they'd be able to scoop water without getting too wet!
Although I was too far away to hear, I could imagine the mirth as they dashed for safer and drier high ground!
The five-liters containers filled with seawater. There has to be a layer of sea sand in the bottom of the bottle!
