I'm in Uruguay and I can only use 25L. That's half of what Richard just found out is used in a shower! I'm in trouble.
I start my day at 7am with a big 2.5L gulp to drink. I use 4.5L to cook and keep it down to 1L for washing and 1.5L for the toilet.
Now I have 15.5L left.
At 8am, after my morning chores, I need 4L to wash my hands and another 3L to wash my feet. So only 1.5L for the toilet.
Now I have 7L left.
Lunch time ! (12pm) I'm thirsty so I drink 1L.
Now I have 6L left.
It's getting low, so at 4pm, I go to collect 15 more litres cause I know we're gonna need more later on.
Now I have 21L left.
At 5pm, we start to prepare for the evening by cooking with 4L and cleaning with 1L. After all that work, I drink 2L.
Now I have 14L left.
After our 7pm chores, I wash hands (1L) and feet (1L), use the toilet (2L).
And now I have 10L left.
So I can wash clothes with 2L
Now I have 8 left.
Before we sleep, its 9pm, we can use that to wash 3 people.
