Working alongside a group of American volunteers, some local volunteers and the families themselves, we built from 9am-4pm every day, with a break for lunch - which included singing and even some Irish dancing courtesy of our own resident expert!
Headed to Santa Fe (about 6 hours from BsAs on bus) and checked into a great hostel there. Up bright and early to start work on the construction site in Recreo (10km from Santa Fe). Building houses for families there. Days spent digging holes, lugging concrete, rendering plaster, laying roofing, and painting. Exhausting work in the heat, but unbelievably rewarding.

A bit of a nightmare getting there... even the taxi driver didn't have a clue where it was. Then heavy traffic... you name it. Typical that it's the only thing in BsAs that's started on time! Amazing concert, but I fear Edel spent lots of it vowing never to be late for anything ever again!
