Taulia is a nice little neighborhood overlooking Molinopampa.  No electricity or sewage, and no one hauls propane tanks the 45mins up the hill to access the houses so everyone cooks with wood from right around the fields up there.  They are proud of a functioning water system that provides more then enough water for the public faucet and taps for each of the 4 houses.  When visiting the system yesterday, saw how they captured water from a spring right on the side of the mountain, then directly piped it into a 2 1/2m x 2 1/2m cement reservoir that we had to scrub all the silt and mud out.  This reservoir has been acting almost like a sedimentation tank clarifying the water a bit.

Sand and silt that has been settling in the res, some from the breakdown of the cement walls.
