February 2011: Getting into a routine

We arrived at the site to find that the first layer was nearing completion. Room was made for larger rocks by means of a temporary long stone ramp built against the foundation. The mortar crew was kept busy by a line of women carrying mortar on their heads right to where it was needed; the same with the rock crew.

Some of the volunteers returned to Bhinder to resume testing and issuing eyeglasses. Eventually both teams met in a home that a farmer graciously offered for the eyesight testing.

The work days are becoming more routine as we grow to expect what our duties will be on the project site. Tomorrow we work throughout the day then return to Udaipur and the Jaiwana Haveli.
