Day 7 - Snorkeling

A travel blog entry by aoleary

... and the others in the building. Everything was washed, cleaned up and dried before anyone left. The society seems to be very patriarchal.

About 1pm we went back to work digging sand and clay into the wheelbarrows and taking them across the street to the construction site. Inside some of our group were plastering the walls and concealing the electrical wires. By 2 pm we stopped digging and went inside to mix concrete. By 3pm we ...
