Lucas and I have nearly finished tiling the bathrooms, after successfully installing doors.
To install a door, first level and plumb it, then make sure it can't move with shims, then fill in gaps with mortar and smooth transition between door and wall:
Lucas will return after a brief break, and we'll finish up the building. In mid-March we'll have a meeting to hopefully register kids with the secretary of education.
On the field station front, a friend in Cuiaba has met with several government officials who are excited about the idea of restoring the field station and awaiting to discuss the project further (probably also in mid-March).
