Today using the architects’ incredible new boxes, we successfully poured two concrete columns -  neither pregnant nor exploding!

We were also visited on site by an eclectic group of Europeans – two French, a Norwegian, and a Dane – that had stayed at the same hostel as GIEU in Cuiaba., and heard that there was some school being constructed a hundred kilometers (112 km to be exact) down the Transpantaneira. So word to all, we are easy to find – just keep driving (there are no crossroads) and look for a bunch of columns (pretty soon look for a roof in progress).

And late at night, Ethan, Mindy, and her son Max returned to the Lodge bringing Giorie Mahn with them, a recently graduated mechanical engineering student.
