Nicaragua 2013: Day 2
I was going to call today’s post “Holes” after the move since we dug so many holes for the fence. Then this evening before dinner I captured this photo of two girl playing at the orphanage. Then I remembered this isn’t about us, it’s for the orphanage and the children.
All that said, let me tell you about our day ; )
The first day of work is always interesting as everyone finds their assigned job and we try and find our equipment…hoping it works. A couple guys headed out to fix two holes in the fence where thieves cut out sections to steal cattle. The men in the bodega started to build sections of fence and four of us started clearing the way and digging wholes. We made a lot of progress, which is typical when you have a fresh team ready to go.
After work we ran up and bought our “treat” pop in bottles, which Josh swears is better. Either way I’ll drink it. Tonight Joel, the facilities manager, is going to share his story how he went from the streets to running the orphanage, building his own house and getting married.
Tomorrow is another day of 90 and HOT sun. Bring on the sunscreen.
