sifting sand

filling the cracks

we started our site building on Sat. building walls .

All supplies were stored at neighbors house across from site so

they wouldn't get stolen

First job was to move materials to the site

Bricks for the walls had to be carried to site

Water had to be hauled from well for the mortar ( this was haul up by bucket on a rope)

Sand had to be sifted to remove the little rocks from it

Other team members and our Maestro (the head person in charge of the building structure)mixed the mortar , sand and water and started to set the bricks in place for the wall there were edges that need to be fill that was my job that day.

Sunday we had a half day at site due to holiday

After we went back to our hotel

Then to town for tour and grocery store to pick up supplies for lunch.
