Today we dug holes. A bittersweet condition is that we have
firm ground – good for architecture, bad for the diggers. Tito and Joam joined
us, what took me ten swings was accomplished in about one by them, needless to
say they were wonderful to have on site. We pretty much just pick-axed and shoveled until lunch.
This afternoon, I went to visit Fatchima (wife of Fiao), who
will be hosting five GIEU students, to make a grocery list, set breakfast and
dinner times, and discuss other things that got lost in translation – which is
alright because people are incredibly good hosts in the Pantanal.
