House building and entertaining children

Yesterday and today, we are working on the house. On our way there, yesterday, we passed about 60 prisoners  doing serious community work helping to reconstruct a road. Typical of the government’s constructive and practical approach to things.

Work on the house had already begun, but we soon got involved moving large planks to the right locations and then nailing them to create the outer walls. Our skills were no match to the ‘locals’ but they appreciate and support our best efforts.

Children began to arrive and were entertained in various ways, including body painting, skipping, football and catch ball.

Here are some pictures.
