Day 10 (read in Big Brother’s Geordie accent). We have now been here for 10 days and so far survived dangerous driving, torrential rain and at times, seriously spicy food to nearly complete what we set out to do - build two bio-gas plants in the beautiful village of Vellery.
Every morning at 8am after fuelling ourselves with porridge made by whoever was unlucky enough to be on rota for that day, we split into two groups of six people and walk to our respective work sites. At the work sites, we work for a good nine hours (interjected by numerous tea breaks and a well deserved lunch). At first, our tasks seemed never ending. We had to constantly dig the ground and clear water created by the torrential rain. But after a few days, the weather changed in our favour and we were able to see some real progress made on both sites.
Anyway, on that note we better hit the work bench! See you soon!
