Here we go, short and sweet...in Gero aside from tending to the cattle and enjoying the antics of all the animals we spent quite a bit of time working on some construction. Using earth bag building techniques and under the strict observations of our hosts' teacher, we added on a few layers of the soon to be theater space for our host who was a professional puppeteer before taking on a farming career.

I also remembered there was the new building and the old building . Chilling out in the common area we reread the ...

A few tense minutes and the snow was over and the lump forming in our throats dissolved and slid down the pipes.
