Across the board today, all the groups literally nailed it! They nailed those boards and structures into places and they did a beautiful job! Here are the updates for today’s activities 🙂
Tara’s village and elephant group:
We worked out little booties off today finishing up the frame and the floor. These guys are so motivated that they worked into our lunch break to get up to a certain point in the floor. They continue to impress me. Other than doing the floor and tiling, we sanded/shaved down bamboo sticks and painted them a gorgeous shade of lime green for the railings. We also carried and lifted lots of wood to finish up the rest of the frame. All we have left is the roof now! During lunch, we played a game of zip bong where you say zip or bong to pass the around the circle. The catch is that you can’t show your teeth while doing it. We were laughing so hard, most of us were in tears. It provided some entertainment and giddiness to get us through the afternoon. I am so proud to say that by the end of the day today we finished all the floor tiling! It looks amazing!!
Tonight we went to one of my favorite places for dinner and all had a traditional Khmer meal as usual. We met Linda who is a cute girl who comes by selling bracelets. She is also known for her killer dance moves. Afterwards, we attended a lady-boy show at the markets. Men dress up as women and lip sync, or try to lip sync, the words to popular dance songs. It’s a really funny experience. Everyone has had a full but fun day, and tomorrow we will finish up our building! Yayy!!
Domdin’s village immersion group:
Hello all my lovelies blog readers,
It was a great job today. We almost finish our new teacher room for the school. It was a very hot day and hard to achieve our goal for today. After we had breakfast and went on tuk tuk to the school, everyone had their own works. They were very busy. We had different groups of people. One group, claimed up to top to make put tin for roof. One group, sawing woods to make wall frames. And other group hammering and nailing on the walls. One more group watering and planting vegetable in a small farm. They tried very hard. One half hours letter we swopped out group around. After they worked really hard we had lunch break.
After we had a break time and lunch, everyone do almost the same in the morning. They continued with roofing, nailing, hammering on the wall. One of our group helped builders mix cement with sand and water to make concrete for tills to make a beautiful floor. They tries to work their jobs because they have one more to finish that building. They are an amazing people and helpful.
The teachers had a great day too, and are still continuing to make progress with their students. Oh how those kids love them 🙂
Our plan for tomorrow we are going to finish that building. Tomorrow will be a really hard work and lots of part need to be done. We have to finish by tomorrow 😉
