A few weeks ago we spent a Saturday morning helping our guard's family with their new house. The most common type of house here is a stick and mud type of house. First, they build a structure out of sticks and logs. Then, they mix up a thick mud and put the mud on walls. We wanted to show our love for this family by helping with this process.
|Here is their old house. It is so very tiny and about 6 people lived in it.|
Imagine when the torrential rains came!?!

|All done....and the mud to show for it.|
|Way to go Meg!!!|
Skirt and all!
|Meghan loves pictures of her feet.|
|They were so kind to give us mangos and some rice.|
We ate some mangos as a snack and then took some home.
