Day 3 Mario's Family

Compliments of Janet Elwer...

March 19, 2013

The second house the team is working on belongs to Mario's family. He and his wife have three little children, so his house is a three bedroom. The house is two weeks from completion. The work we've done is moving lots of fill for the floors, sifting the sand for the mortar, whitewashing the walls and getting to know the family and extended family. The kids enjoyed the stickers and tattoos. Kudos to Aaron for  climbing the scaffold and painting!  We've learned of new fruits and uses for them- cutuco: you split in half, scoop out the inner fruit and throw it away then you have two cups to drink from. "Chuck Norris" visited our site aka Aaron Reichter who wore a camouflage bandana and Mario called him Chuck Norris. The El Salvador laborers work very hard in the heat. We had to take many water breaks and short rests. The area is very dry and dusty but the people are very clean and the clothes are spotless.
