Abstract: Sophie Salffner has spent six months in Nigeria doing linguistic fieldwork. She never lived a day without water, but learnt how to manage it in a different way. In this short article, Sophie describes her experience in the world of water scarcity, far away from home and far away from the luxurious daily showers and running tap water of her home country Germany.
