Construction Day

Everyone in the community is awake by 5:30, breakfast by 6:30 and work begins by 7:00 am.  Prepare yourself for a long day of mixing and pouring concrete.  Oh, by the way, there isn’t a mixer.  All of the mixing is done by putting cement, small rocks and sand in a circle. Then grooving a circular water trap around the outer edge and mixing from the center.  I’ve included some pictures of the day and all of the wonderful people who were willing to help complete this project.

#2 (625x469)

That’s right, a pool of concrete, shovel it, man and woman handle it up and pour it…

#3 (625x469)

#4 (625x469)

#5 (625x469)

No pain no gain…

#6 (625x469)

Smiling is the best way to cope with pain…

#7 (625x469)

#8 (625x469)


And finished, start time 7:00 am and finish around 3:00 pm.  We have some sore muscles, but we have finished a very important aspect of the new administration office.  Great job everyone!!!
