The school update...

Hello all!

Sorry for the lack of photos it seems I can't find a place that will allow me to upload pictures onto the computer. Also, I havent been able to access the internet much anyway which means no blog updates. Anyway, I am happy to report that the school building project has been going very well. All the walls have gone up and all the brick laying has been completed. The roofing has just begun and next week the walls will be rendered and we will begin painting!

We also just had the school blessing ceremony and it was absolutely amazing! It went over two days. Cambodians like to prolong a good thing if they can ;) The monks came and along with village elders blessed the school. After we had dinner we danced under the stars with what seemed like the entire village.

Imagine, a rural cambodian village. Five massive speakers and a megaphone sitting on a pole. The best of Cambodian music. A small half built school building in a rectangle piece of land. In one corner is a vegetable garden, opposite is a grove of koky trees, and in the middle of it all is a sea of big hole villagers. Mums and dads, boys and girls builders and volunteers all dancing and drinking under a crescent moon and a sky full of stars.

Pictures coming as soon as i can upload.
