Each member of our team has worked very hard. Jen, Ashley and Justin have really bonded with the kids. Duck duck goose, photos and card games of go fish keeps everyone; adults and kids laughing. Victor and Lonnie have left but our hosts still ask about them. Rebecca and Wray compete to carry the largest stones, Freda and her new friend Laxmi, both daadis, grandmas, never stop and without a doubt have carried the most rocks. Bill and I take turns with Parbhu on the rock taxi. We all have fun with our hosts on the ‘conga line’ passing ‘C’ment person to person sometimes as far as 50’. We have been so graciously been accepted by our hosts and have taken tea in many of the villagers homes.
The dam is almost done but our friendships will last forever.
