Well… another day down. Today we succefully finished installing the ceilings in the first long buildings, we finished the soffiting on the second short building, and we installed the framework for the ceilings in the last of the 4 buildings.Throughout our time on site we have been working with one main carpenter. Charles. Chales, aka Chaz, aka C.K. was helping with the ceilings of the Latrines when we first arrived and agreed to help us with our work on the school. He has been an immense help and has really let us move at a quick pace. The other day though, he brought in his apprentice. Moses. With the help of Moses our productivity took a sharp increase and we have been able to make larger leaps and bounds then we thought possible in a day. Moses is a great example to show the work ethic of our favorite workers who have been helping us on site. Not only does he show tremendous skill and focus when he is working, but he is able to do so while working at a pace that is almost impossible for the rest of us to keep up with. We are constantly amazed by the skills of those who help us on site and we cannot thank them enough for helping finish the school.
As a side note, Ground Nut Soup and Rice Balls. The travel team and I have been working our way through the Han’s Lodge menu (all of which has been fantastic), and we have been trying to decide on a favorite dish. For several of us, we have agreed that the best dish is the Groundnut Soup and Rice Balls. Dacoda has requested that we post a picture to the blog so that when friends and family ask what it is that we ate while in Ghana, we have a simple go to answer. So, here it is, Ground Nut Soup and Rice Balls
