Wednesday, Nov 19: Day 3 of Hard Work

Posted in Cambodia on November 19, 2014

Today we finished plastering the outside of the latrine and smoothing out all of the plastered surfaces. While smoothing the plaster was the lightest of all the tasks, it certainly proved to be the most difficult for all of us; it seemed that just as everything was smooth and nearly perfect a small piece of rock was dragged through your work. Oh well, wax on, wax off!

Sandra also worked on sealing the inside of the water basin with cement. Tomorrow will be our last day at this site and we will be starting our next latrine in a new location on Monday. It’s hard to believe that we have gone from a pile of bricks to a beautifully constructed latrine in such a short time!
