We woke up excited and ready to go on our largest project of the trip, only to find out this was a true job for the local laborers. We were able to help deliver dirt for the leveling of the floor. After that, the locals took over with their cementing skills obtained from previous jobs. With the help of the cement mixer, we were able to go through roughly 22 bags of cement, each weighing approximately 80 lbs. The job was finished by 3:30 this afternoon. While the locals contributed to the construction, we entertained the children with balls and coloring books. There was laughter from all around.
Our day concluded with a trip to the souvenir shop and an excursion to the “San Francisco Bridge,” as Daniel calls it.
