“We had great hopes this year. We hoped to stay at our real workplace during the harvest. But it did not happen. Yesterday evening, the head of our department asked me to come to the theater at 5:30 am. I did not expect that and I was not ready for the field. I had to leave my children or find someone else who could go to the field instead of me. Even although I did not have time to go out into the field, I was left there all day long. They brought water to the field late, and I suffered from a sunstroke during the day. Worse, the bus to collect us arrived late, too. I didn’t get home until 8pm.”
