For the first time in what seems like at least five years, the fountains in front of the Archdiocesan offices were switched on again today:
They were switched off during the drought, but following an extensive cleaning and resealing program, the first test of the renovated system was done this afternoon. A small boy shared the joy:
I was working out in the courtyard underneath when the water was turned on and went up to investigate. When I announced to the staff inside I was greeted with incomprehension: “what fountains?” What short memories we have.
