bricks and bichos

15 07 2013

the summer has arrived! finally it is so hot you want to plunge into the river to cool off. joe was experimenting with old newspaper and mud to make bricks and the first of our volunteers for the week arrived on sunday.

we started today with way to many of the “black mosquitos” which have just been mentioned on the national news here in the bar, but are learning their habits so we can avoid them, adding netting to the shade structure so it becomes a shady and insect free area, and have bought varios different creams and sprays as recommended by the locals. The builder is coming down this afternoon and things are looking good for a week’s useful work!

ha llegado el verano finalmente! ahora hace calor suficiente para saltar al rio y disfrutar el agua dulce para descalentarte. jo vino y hizo experimentos con ladrillos hecho de varro y periodicos viejos y los primeros voluntarios que vienen esta semana llegaron ayer

empezamos hoy con demasiado mosquitos negros, pero ahora estamos aprendiendo sus hábitos para evitarles. también vamos a poner redes para crear un espacio sin bichos debajo de la pergola, y hemos comprado varios cremas y latas de espray según los recomendaciones de la gente del pueblo. el constructor viene esta tarde y esperemos una semana de progreso en el sitio!
