Day 4: School toilet building
Today we continued to help the build the school toilet following up from day 3. First we had one pile where we mixed cement with sand and another with cement and gravel. After mixing we poured water in to make cement, I took turns with different people to mix it. After mixing I helped out in laying bricks which was a new experience for me. At the end of the day we had cooking lesson but unfortunately I cut my finger at the beginning so I couldn’t participate in the session.
I helped carry bricks up and down at the start of the day. After we had lunch I started helping out with laying bricks which was quite challenging but fun in the same time. At night we had a cooking lesson and I was part of the group that helped cook a variety of vegetables. Seeing other people eat the food I made gave me a smile. Before we went to bed we learned some of Laos culture where we had to make this basket and it turns out in their culture if you can’t make a basket you won’t be able to get married.
