Once upon a time back in 2002, we visited and it rained and poured so badly that we had to evacuate the house a few days prior to flying home.
8 years later, and it rained so hard and the water rose so quickly that the hubs and I looked at each other and said "Can you believe this is happening AGAIN?!11!?"
Thankfully, with prayers from my friends and a water pump with enough gas to last 8 hours running, the water level has subsided to the point where we're in no danger.
Check the slideshow to see how bad it was!
The sink water is water that came UP through the pipes. I won't tell you what it smelled like. Use your imagination: developing country, lousy infrastructure, lack of public trash cans...
