Work, Work, Work

Day 2 on the worksite and how it seems to be flying by. In the morning we finished off pouring the foundations. It was hard work this morning as the heat was scorching and it just kept getting hotter and hotter. We took a extended lunch break because of the heat and in classic portogese…



Steel yourselves ponta, reach out is in town.

12 volunteers in a boat

Hey everyone. What do you get when you cross 12 volunteers, a boat and a gorgeous lake system? A bloody good time, that’s what! We headed out on the boat through the lake systems, where we got to view some different traditional fishing methods and we pulled up at the edge of the lake. Here, we…
