Today we visited the barrio that was built on top of a dump. The construction crew put in a 50ft long foundation for the base of a wall that was going to be built around the barrio┬┤s community center. The men of our group worked alongside a 70 year old man, and he put them all to shame, they had some trouble keeping up with him. The other half of the group helped out with the school in the morning by feeding the children and then doing crafts and playing with them. After lunch, a line of about 20 or 25 people, mainly women and children, formed an assembly line up the former Inca Irrigation Canal. We moved about 300 bricks up and over the hill in about an hour and a half. It was really cool to see everyone so excited, especially the kids, to be helping. We lost Tom today to the Project New Hope farm where they are raising snails, milking cows, and getting ready to raise guinea pigs (Cuy). Today brought many smiles to us team members as well as the people we shared our time with. We are looking forward to our last two days in two new barrios.
