April 19, 2010: Trenching

Posted in Peru on April 20, 2010

Day 9 was all about trenching. We also continued to lay brick, mostly completing the bathroom on the second level and all four walls to mid-level (scaffolding comes next), however, the trenchers carried the day! They unearthed some very massive stones using grade 8 math, fulcrums, levers, and sheer brute strength. By the end of the day the trenchers reached the 40 centimeter depth that is required and the very important sewer line can be completed!

A few team members were down sick with stomach aches, but this didn’t stop them from contributing and continuing to help out. It was also one of our team members birthday today so we had an excellent dinner complete with cake for the birthday girl.

Hamblamos luego…
