The Seventh Day Adventist Church are building a load of churches all over the country using prefab structures that can be built in a day. (We were asked to find water at five of them.) Below, is a “one day” built school. Actually, each structure can be built in a day – I’m not sure how many people it takes.
I went off to lunch with an old friend the day we surveyed here!!! And didn’t get back in time…I arrived late to find everyone taking shelter from the heat inside one of the classrooms. They are surprisingly cool for a building without a ceiling. (Said to stop me feeling so bad!) Obviously insulation can be added to the walls and the roof, but it seems the white reflects enough heat. Chances are they wont get water in a borehole here, and on our recommendations probably wont drill at all.
It was totally my fault we were late getting away from Gwanda but luckily on the way home, we had these light conditions to work with!
This road winds in amongst the hills – huge granite outcrops on both sides of the road, the mealie lands barren and maize stooks empty after one of the worst season in ages.
I love this view (above) and want to share it with anyone who has ever driven this road…
