Pass me a Brick
Here is Peru construction is VERY different. The work in very manual and labor is cheap. Here is a picture of Benjamin helping out with the moving of about 2,000 bricks in one day. The bricks are literally tossed from one worker to the next. These bricks were tossed from the second floor to the fourth floor. His arms have quite a few scratches and he was very tired at the end of each day. He was a big help with the group that was here especially with the translation between the Peruvian workers and the North American workers. He also enjoyed the fellowship with the young men in the group. What happens if the brick gets dropped, you ask? Yep, you guessed it, it shatters to pieces.
