@barbaracmartel

@tangocashtucker less bacteria than tap water has, I believe... its unpopulated area... far from big cities.

@abellchristian

@misschristinacleary this comment made me laugh way too hard! 😂

@mundirisadatjames

@anmol.047 You too refer to slippers as chappals? I can now see similarities in the languages of the world! In kiswahili, slippers are called champali. Many thanks to Natgeo for drawing the peoples of the world closer.

@tangocashtucker settle petal. Don’t get your knickers in a knot. It’s Instagram. Are you commenting on all the comments? There’s plenty with the same train of thought.

@tangocashtucker

@getfatwithlinda Everybody else just uses their phone for time, so he got it real cheap.

@tangocashtucker

@ellenvictoria8622 Better to not have any, and let your people die off, huh?

@tangocashtucker

@mundirisadatjames Not in U.S., it's changing. The role of mother is looked down upon, sadly.

@tangocashtucker

@barbaracmartel Except for the bacteria in the agua.

@tangocashtucker

@azbranch He brushed the child's teeth the day before, and now it's mom's turn.

@tangocashtucker

I think the interesting part of this story is the modernity of the toothbrush in this setting.

@tangocashtucker

@misschristinacleary Still, a very insulting remark on your part, without totally knowing just why the man is in the background.

@misschristinacleary

@tangocashtucker sure. Which is why I said generally.
