Another Rewarding Day

Another Rewarding Day

This day started off much better, as we all went to bed much earlier than last night! For breakfast, we had delicious sticky rice and corn beef with onions and egg. After a great breakfast, we headed into Ubujan early. On the road into the center of Ubujan, we stopped to take observe the progress of the plumber. To help the plumber with his work, we learned how to place gaskets into the connector PVC pipes and finished preparing his pipes for insertion. After we went back to Conception’s house and had lunch, we went to the hardware store to buy some materials. We had to go back four times due to Kim forgetting what she needed!

After lunch is when work ramped up. We first took measurements of how far we needed to continue piping to the last tap stand. It was so far! Afterwards, I met up with some other team members to continue working on the shed. We took the control box and mounted inside the shed. We stapled the wires inside to help reduce clutter. It was ultimately a fun and rewarding day. Although we did much more manual labor than yesterday, it felt much more rewarding due to the work we put in.
