Butch has been the leader for a project to build a latrine for Nicolasa, a lady in the upper regions. This is a major project and what makes it so gratifying is Nicolasa’s unending excitement and appreciation. She is chipping in to help wherever she can and is always giving the workers and visitors water or juice. The latrine sits on a very narrow ledge making construction difficult but Mario, Julian and Jorge are great workers.( Ellen is now Jorge’s Godmother…but that is another story.) Notice all the blocks required , all carried up by the women on their heads. We will be gone when the upper portion is built but not forgotten I am sure.
