Speed is the name of their (construction) game

The seed storage facility construction is cruising!

This picture is taken from the main road through Kayemor.

This picture is taken from the middle of the peñc mi, between the teacher’s bedrooms and the classroom.
Here’s another picture from the same location – that guy held that position for a very long time while I took this picture.
This picture is taken from just outside of the peñc mi, looking in – the main classroom is in the background.

This picture is looking into the inside of the building – not too exciting right now, but I can’t wait until it is full of big barrels full of seed! (only about 7 or 8 months to go…)

The guys working on the building (like everyone here) were really excited when I was taking pictures of the building – so much so, in fact, that they wanted to pose for the picture: one is shoveling gravel, another is carrying a bucket on his head, another has a spade in his hand to smooth the concrete on the building, another is holding the board that is keeping the cement framing in place (he didn’t really have a choice about that), and the last (the youngest guy, who wasn’t quite as excited as the rest) is just standing there.

A few days later. It’s pretty close to being done – just need a roof and a floor and a door! (plus the barrels inside to store the seed)
