School build day 2

Up very early this morning with the sound of the roosters giving their morning ritual since 3 am. It's amazing how much you can do with so many hard working volunteers. The team pulled together and managed to get the foundation complete and the box beams framed and poured. Many people learned how to lay bricks today that had never seen a trowel before. Sophea the teacher at the new school and his team of locals never stopped all day in the 34 degree heat. Again early to bed since the team can barely hold their heads up after dinner. All mixing of concrete is done by hand here. My kingdom for a cement mixer.
