Gratulerer med dagen / Congrats on the build

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

Today Norway is (/almost has πŸ˜‰ ) celebrated its Constitution today, May 17 (β€˜syttende maiβ€˜), so here is a GRATULERER MED DAGEN (congratulations with the day) for all my Norwegian friends!

Here in Mozambique we are congratulating ourselves with the fact that we are still on schedule and have put the roof on the house! Inside plaster work is done, and we’re halfway on plastering the outside…that and the floor is the target for tomorrow followed by a ceremony with lots of singing and dancing to handover the house to the family!

Some pictures from today:

Drawing water from the waterhole:


…and carrying the HEAVY 20 liter jerrycan…oof!!


Putting plaster on the outside walls:


Roof is on top, finalizing the house:


Ain’t she gorgeous??
Once again, it is kids like this one that we are really doing this work for:

Charles F. Kettering: “Keep on going and the chances are you will stumble on something, perhaps when you are least expecting it. I have never heard of anyone stumbling on something sitting down.”
