May 7th: Back in the trenches – 4.5 more to dig!

Posted in Phillipines on May 7, 2010

Another early day at the worksite! Back into the trenches we went this morning, with slightly less rigour than yesterday, but definitely improved technique : ) . We were all a little sore this morning, but everyone powered through the aches and dug some terrific holes today. With 2 finished, we stopped for lunch and finished a third in the afternoon. We'll get going on the other 4 and 1/2 tomorrow!

We stopped slightly early this afternoon to enjoy a swim at one of Cebu's fancier hotels. It was definitely nice to cool off and give our digging muscles a break, and try to counter-act the major farmers tan that I'm sure we will all develop in the next couple of weeks! Definitely a nice afternoon off after some serious digging time.

We found another great place for dinner (tons of fresh seafood) and then back to the hotel for a quick round of cards before bed.

More tomorrow!
