Day 4- Water Water Water

We stopped at the ferreteria again yesterday and we will need to stop there again today. They definitely recognise us when we walk in, especially the security guard and his shotgun. We finished off the water lines yesterday. We had to wait to do a water test until the afternoon when the kids had finished school as the bathrooms were on the same line as the school. We need to shut down the line to tie the new line in. When we turned the water back

A Great Start – Day 1

We arrived at the school and the doors were closed which seemed odd for a school day. As we approached the school, the doors were flung open and all the school children were lined up on either side of the door to great us. What a wonderful surprise. They were beatiful, in their
