all have trees and all the other trees. and water wasn't always as scarce as it is today abdullah's father ybarra game remembers when it was plentiful and came from a nearby river. but those times are long gone. in the 1960 s. there was always enough water. we had a big fat 12 inch pipe from the river. but then it was kept in 1904 because it was less and less water in the river. that river bloody i was has now shrunk to a mere trickle. it's the same in most parts of the country. very little rain falls here and water is extremely scarce jordan
