It’s been a while since I’ve posted a photo of the outside of our house under construction. We’ve reached a good stopping place, have run out of funds, and are leaving for the States on March 15. All the walls have been plastered inside and out, tubes have been run on the walls so that electrical wires can be secured (next time), there are front and back doors to lock, a cement floor, and we have a new well, almost operational. They only had to dig down about 8 feet to reach sweet, clean water.
There’s much more to be done inside when we return in November, but I’m happy to announce that the house is inhabitable. In fact, Roberto stays there now. I stayed overnight on Wednesday so that I could feel the nighttime energy–the bats, geckos, and other creatures that dominate the darkness. Before dark, we saw a little baby rabbit, and I’m guessing there are plenty of them in the tall grass in the field. Dawn is an especially, exquisite time when the birds start flitting around. Roberto has even seen a large chameleon–about 6 feet long, including its long tail.
IT’S A TRULY MAGICAL FARM.
