Today the group shook out the their sore muscles and went back to the work site. For today, the goal was to fill in foundation for a house. This involved lugging an assorment of rocks to ditches via passing buckets "fire lines" and filling in the space around the rocks with cement. While the work was difficult and the sun was hot, the group worked very well and was able to finish the foundation before lunch. In the clinic, today many of the sponsored children were seen for well child checkups. Since Saturdays are half days of work, after lunch the group went to take a tour of the city and to the national museum of Haitian history. The group also went to eat at a Haitian restaurant. It was a day where the group spent a lot of time together and became even closer.
