10 goats 2 dogs and an Uncle Willy: day 3

Chilliwack HANDS Team:

First off I would like to apologize for not posting a blog for yesterday (Tuesday) we were having some technical difficulties (It has been posted now).


Day 3 we went back to the job site and continued our work on the school. It was another hot morning of work, however, the afternoon it clouded over and became quite comfortable to work in. Leveling more dirt, washing steel beams, and moving cement blocks/bags were our activities for the day. Today we delt with the heat a lot better.

As you can clearly see it was a very dirty day. We had a very productive day, making us all very tired at the day. Returning to camp we were visited by Lester's (Our translator) family, and Steve (last name unknown) who gave us a very intresting history on Nicaragua. Tomorrow we will be going back to the job site for our last day of work before the weekend to pour concrete.

P.S The bags have finally arrived! Mike and I are very glad to have them back.

Feel free to ask about the title ;p
