On my arrival at Tamesna visitor’s residence, the masons were hard at work trying to complete yet another round of repairs on our poorly constructed building. We had two contractors do very mediocre work for which we continue to have to recover. Although adobe in Niger is in need of frequent maintenance–the Tamesna residence has really been a trial due to the poor quality of the original construction. We have finally found a very good mason who is completing this round of repairs before the rains and our fall trip.
When I got there a pidgeon had walked under the door to Dr. Bob’s room and taken up residence.
The roof of the storage room has been replaced and the entire upper terrace wall has now been replaced and is awaiting the finish coat.
