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.
And Moola Moola chicks were peeping from their home in a stack of bricks. The Moola Moola is a bird thought to be very good luck.
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.
I pruned all the flamboyant and Neem trees we have planted–they are just now budding out after the winter dormant season. Hoping for shade soon.
Love seeing the improvements. Birds are keeping the bug population in check and are so cute. Good to see the
Trees growing so nicely…the goat manure must have helped. Shade a necessity in the courtyard and so beautiful
