They that Wait - deux

No one and nothing in Burundi works every day except for Jesus. It is one of the reasons that they love Him so. He is so dependable.  The power does not work 24/7 so the fridge defrosts itself every night. The water  dries up at a predictably irregular rate - so you fill your water jug and teapot every day just in case, and do laundry when you can.  The internet to the whole city is prone to going down - "maybe tomorrow Madame"  The police are shutting roads all over town  in an attempt to thwart Somali terrorists that the rest of us are  pretty sure are not here.  When Baba Niyonzima is out of the office for a week everything slows to a crawl. And a Burundian  crawl makes plate tectonics look fast.
