Well folks, week one is done and we all feel good (except Daphne who got stuck with “The Bug”). The Midnight Blogger has to give it to Ken and Butch who really got down and dirty and worked very hard in the heat and dirt to build the foundation for Petrona’s house. Especially Ken who leaves the same job at home but for zero pay. All the Midnight Blogger did was run around taking pictures and generally get in the way in the crowded quarters.
We miss our team-mate Tom who looked after the money last year.This year Butch and Joan had to fill that gap. Today while Daphne stayed close to the bano, Denise and Joan went off to buy shoes as women are want to do. Nineteen pairs of shoes….that’s ridiculous.
Tomorrow we are off in the van to the famous market at Chichicastenango.
