Who would have thought that nearly every conversation my teammates and I have had during these past couple days, would be about toilet design? I am not just talking about a passing comment – no, we’ve spent hours trying to figure out the waste water design for the Lambi 2 Project we are working on…hours! … More Is your toilet sexy?
I am a little concerned about getting caught up on rocks as we drill in the mountain village of Marbial. This is a percussion drill bit the students at Rowan University designed to help me beat up those rocks! Thank you Rowan University Engineers & Innovators without Borders!
Happy New Year Everyone! I really appreciate all who check out my blog and post comments. I hope you all have a snazzy 2013! The plans are still somewhat tentative but it looks like I will be spending the first 3 weeks of February in Haiti. What better way to bring in a new year … More Haiti, here I come!
These are the teammates who didn’t give up – these guys were amazing!
Using an extension rod from our drilling unit and a tennis ball, we take a break in the late afternoon for some good ‘ol baseball
The guys we worked with were great! Our days were long (10-12 hours) and the work was extremely difficult but they kept it fun and joyful
This is a typical house in Ferrier – the village where our project was located
Our transportation was pretty fun – we bounced around in the bed of a large truck – sometimes jumping up and down on purpose, sometimes just being thrown up and down by the terrain 🙂
Hey Guys, I am leaving for Haiti in a couple of hours for a short – 1 week – project. I will be working with Dominic, Steve and CJ (along with a group of volunteers from the village) to drill near an orphanage in Ferrier, Haiti. Please keep us all in prayer – for health, … More Off to Haiti!
