One morning a few weekends ago, i got woken early to a rowdy group of men all shouting to be chosen, chosen for what? A gruelling days labour – but it pays!
Ok so ignore the razor wire surrounding my house, beyond that you can see another house that is being built (SLOWLY) across the road from us. I have to say that being on the side of a mountain, building in this spot isn't an easy challenge. BUT with no cement mixer, no crane, and no health and safety – you can see in the photo how they mix the cement on the ground, shovel it in pans, move it up a ladder (made of bits of bamboo mailed together) on their heads, then pass it along a human chain, before the guy on the end throws it to the lay the floor. All in the hot burning sun. Section by section the floor of the 2nd level gets finished.
They worked from dawn till dusk and completed their task.
Well done guys – I couldn't have done it!!
