Well here we are at the end of our first building day. We managed to complete a few rows of bricks on house no. 11 already. The team is working well together and there are a lot of laughs on the building site, especially as we work together with the Ugandan Builders: Ronny, Emma, Ivan, Charles, Nicholas.  We lay bricks in teams and form chains to get bricks to the right areas and do lots of manual stuff. It’s challenging, especially for those of us who are only used to working indoors and more than likely behind a computer all day everyday! The sun is warm, but not too bad. A few of us got more sunburn than we had bargained for, but overall it was a good day. I think we will sleep well tonight! First we get to eat spaghetti bolognaise, made by our lovely cooks Juliet and Elisabeth. We can’t complain about the food here, that’s for sure!
