March 15: Latrine’s done and started a new irrigation ditch

Posted in Cambodia on March 15, 2013

Everything is well here in Kep. We finished the 2 latrines for the community on Thursday morning.
A very special moment as all the people on site helped out at the last moment, from the children to the adults. We all pitched in!
Then we went too a site very close by to build an irrigation ditch for another local family. A lot of cement, digging and dirt moving again. There is a 600 meter walk on a dike to get to the site. An interesting walk as we had to pass through a water buffalo herd to reach the site. This project is going well but there is no shade so it's very hot. But we did get a little rain shower on Friday which was very well received.
Friday night we went for a nice supper with the Equitable Cambodia (EC) staff and some Rotarian's. Great food, great conversation and a lot of laughs. Vy, our local EC rep is now referred to as the princess. A wonderful, passionate, hard working lady with a wonderful sense of humor.
We are now heading into the weekend and are going into Kampot on Saturday to shop and see the sites.
