There’s a nice large reservoir about a half hour walk from Panya. If we have time after work to get there and back before sunset at 6 it’s a great way to get some exercise and get clean.
An arch that our great interns made. You can still see the frame in there, that comes out the next day and voila, you get pretty pumped interns and a beautiful arch.Baby coffee plants. We have a coffee bush behind our house that has dropped some berries. When they germinate they celebrate by pushing the little coffee bean up in the air and waving it around before bursting out in leaf.
A view of the Sala with the new metal roof in place. We experienced a tropical rain storm and had to bring the bricks inside so they could continue to dry out. We’ll try and get pictures of a tropical rain storm next time we have one although its just like someone throwing buckets of water at you. If you are in it you are soaked through in about ten seconds. Amazing!!
Our finished house, done by the interns with a flair for design and natural finishes, mostly made with clay from Panya. Here’s what they started with.
