The ceiling is getting ready. This grass came all the way from Senegal, near Dakar. Somewhere near Fajara/ Traffic Light some beautiful handwork in progress:
I hear my trees have produced lemons and oranges! Only a couple, but they have! Unfortunately, I have no pictures. The garden has grown quite a bit in the rainy season. I can’t wait to see how big everything has grown. There are orange, lemons, papaya trees, banana palms, avocado trees and a “soursop” tree that has already produced, but very small fruits. A fully grown soursop fruit:
Another great “upcycling” idea: a shop made out of a sea container. It was shop keeper Maguette’s idea; Maguette, wishing you and your business all the best!
New pictures, sent through what’s app. Not the best quality, this ” mist” seems to be caught inside Aliou’s phone. But still, very happy to see the progress! In the rainy season it’s harder to build, mostly because of the dirt road that leads to the compound. It gets really muddy and the trucks are having a harder time to get there. Adama decided to make the best of it and started growing water melons and Moringa. I love water melons, but won’t be able to taste them because I’m not there. My own water melons! “Don’t worry,” she said, “we’ll eat them for you”. So maybe next time…
Not a very sexy subject, but it needed to be done. Because without it, things will get even less sexy very soon… And living “off the grid”, you’ll need to build your own sewerage; a “suck away”. When it’s full (of only waste water in my case), simply order a truck to come and suck it out, or build another one, somewhere else in your compound.
