Japan, Project Tohoku, satellite project

Change of Plans

After having a team scrubbing dirty lino for the last two days in a frantic effort to get our new base up and running as soon as possible, someone forgot to tell me that the whole lot would have to come up because of mould trapped underneath. Just got word from the building owner that we can paint the floor All Hands blue though, which sounds great. Cheaper than new lino, easier to do, quicker and cooler temperature-wise which is going to be important because it’s really hotting up here. Sorry to all those who cleaned; you did a fantastic job and guess what? Now you can start on the concrete underneath!

Tomorrow I’m off to Yamada again to try to nail down another satellite project, this time working solely through the Volunteer Center there. Hopefully I’ll be able to say something a little more positive and productive.
