Week six started with a lot of digging: trenches of about 5 meters in length will connect the laboratory's sinks to the soak pit. Once the piping is installed, volunteers kept busy putting back the soil into the trenches to cover them up. We have received our order for windows, there are no glass panes yet but the metal bars form a beautiful decorative motif. While some of the Tanzanian workers are busy chiseling the cement blocks to insert the windows, others are working on covering the blocks with plaster in order to give the inside walls a nice smooth finish. At the end of the week, we were able to pick up the wooden doors previously ordered. We can now start our long stretch of sanding work. Other wood working activities included the cutting of pieces of wood required to build the roof trusses. It was a busy week to say the least, but we are approaching our goal, little by little.
