After long journeys and pre-build adventures, the Twin Cities Habitat Cambodia Big Build Team arrived in city of Battambang, excited and ready to go. We’re joined by over 200 volunteers from all over the world. Our team will be building two homes this week, and the entire Big Build will provide 23 homes.

It is the last day to see the house and the family - the very last day.  How could that happen?! I am very sad as are all of us.  How can we tell our new friends that the pleasure is all ours - REALLY!!!  We will so miss Mario, Mao, Juanca, Wadel,  Andres, Felipe! How strange that we feel like family and come together as though no time has passed.

Here I am again in (or rather near) Sardinal in a hotel in Costa Rica getting up before our standard breakfast of rice/beans, fresh fruit and occasionally something they appear to think Americans--North Americans,  like for breakfast—like hot dogs.  We get up early, and return each day at 4:30, go for a quick dip in the ocean (to supplement the parsimonious showers here in the hotel) come back for dinner.  Little chance to check email and charge iphones as all electricity shuts off every time one leaves his room.  The days slip by quickly.  Thus I come to be writing about Week 2, Day 3, on Day 5.
