Hello to all. It is currently 0815 hours on Saturday 31 March 2012 and I am sitting on 6 bricks up on the top of the mountain in El Picacho where the well will be built, starting either later today or no later than Monday. The Gehlen team is hauling bags of sand up to this location so that when we get the 96 pound bags of cement here the foundation for the 10,000 gallon tank can begin.
The exact location 14 46'54.6" N and 87 28'37.8". The altitude is 1496 meters. We have a thermometer with us and we will be able to capture the exact temperature on this mountain top where the team is working. Just like the 2nd house in Nuevo Capital, there is no shade. The team is hauling the bags of sand up the mountain in an assembly fashion through a coffee field We will be sending photos as soon as my camera gets here. You can tell I am working really hard sitting on these bricks (carried up here yesterday) typing this message. Life is really tough for me! We will watch the kids real close today because it is really hot. They will drink water and water mixed with gatorade.
