On-site, columns continue to be unveiled, each one a different color than the one before – Joao does the concrete mixing proportions by eye. Today is Mindy and Max’s last day, and looks like the cold spell is here to stay. Mindy successfully finished bricking the septic hole today, and it looks gorgeous. Tonight, Mindy, Max, Ethan, and I have a ride out of the Pantanal, we’ll be jumping out at Pocone to meet with the Secretary of Education tomorrow, and Mindy and Max will continue on their way to Cuiaba, and then back to the States.

Thank you for everything Mindy – joining us on this project with zero details last August, dealing with Ethan and planning GIEU, your whirlwind energy on the construction site and in teaching English lessons, your sleeping bag that you lent to us last minute in your dead-of-night trip back to the airport, we’ve loved having you with us for all of this, and can’t wait to see you back in AA.
