February 12: Making progress & new friends

Posted in Rwanda on February 12, 2014

We got a lot done today. Finished glazing all of the windows and mortared the rock columns.



When we finished for the day, we heard some women singing and dancing in the field behind the centre. They were rehearsing for a concert of some sort. As we walked over to watch, all of the kids came running to us holding our hands and wanting their picture taken. We sat and watch for about a half an hour. It was so much fun!


We finished with a beer (which seems to be a ritual now) and walked through the town on our way home. It was a busier day for locals than we've seen before. And as always we were joined by young children who would teach us songs as they walked with us. Each day we get to enjoy this twice on our three mile walk to and from the centre.
