BTN (Cape Town water crisis)

BTN (Cape Town water crisis)

FACTS- As humans we depend on water, and for most we don’t think about how much we use. For people in Cape Town (experiencing a seemingly endless drought) water is scarce. They only get 50 litres a day that’s barely enough to get you through the day.

  • dishes and laundry, 18 litres a day.
  • 90 second shower, 15 litres.
  • 1 toilet flush, 9 litres.
  • Washing your hands, 3 litres.
  • Cooking, 2 litres.
  • Drinking water, 2 litres.
  • 1 dog bowl, 1 litre.

Thats 50 litres gone and if want to have everyday luxuries like a long shower or even going to the toilet more than once a day you’ll be in a predicament.

QUESTION-Who controls the water? Do certain people- like their Prime minister get more water?  

UNDERSTANDINGS -I now understand that we shouldn’t take water for granted. And in some countries they barely have enough water to do what we consider day to day things.

GOAL- to describe well.

As an widely known and established pastry chef, I was know for my extravagant and dramatic cakes. My current master piece was close to finished, I was just putting on final touches and getting it ready to send off. It was an adorable daffodil yellow, and was lightly sprinkled in petite pink sprinkles. It was of huge importance that it was flawless, I was sending it to a prestigious critic and I was sure she would notice the finest of details. But the most vital and consequential step was getting my masterpiece over the large and poorly cared for bridge.
