We are all pretty sore today and we are moving a bit slower today. We noticed that the bridge is showing signs of fatigue too. I don't think it's safe at all and it freaks me out to have to cross it.... yes, I'm a bit of a suck about the bridge but wait til you see the pictures -- you'll understand.
At 2:20pm today, we had another delivery of blocks just after we had finished moving the remaining gravel
Our masons are really cool guys. Carlos is about 25 and Mynor is 22 and they've been partners for many years, since Mynor was 14. Carlos who has 3 children, is the quiet, shy one and Mynor has 1 daughter and is divorced. He's the very chatty one and always cracking jokes. They are good to work with and are happy with us carrying all the materials in, while they just keep laying blocks and building the walls. They are definitely better at it than we are, so we'll leave it alone. This house has to stand for many, many years!
Today we see a structure, which is amazing. It's real progress!!!! Yaaaayyyy for us! And Sandra is really happy to see her house starting to take form!
