Today was the first day of 'proper work' at the dam site. The team started the day with some stretching exercises led by Karol with the "Barbara Streisand" soundtrack. The chief and some of the Kenyan builders joined in. A great start. A furious burst of work and enthusiasm ensued with a pause for sweet tea and bread and butter.
Lunch was a welcome relief later on. As was the chilli sauce added to a hot meal prepared on site by the community.
Lots of cement mixing, shovelling and water carrying later we ground to a final halt and a "stretch down" before the group returned back at the ASDF centre for a well deserved cup of tea and shower.
Some quotes from the group:
"Today was hot, sweaty, sweaty and quite sweaty" Karol
"Knackered. When's dinner I want to go to bed". Rich
