The lovely Lamin

August 13, 2008

Apparently it has been the wettest July for 15 years in Gambia but at least it is meant to be raining there during the summer months! More bricks have arrived so the build continues and is looking good. The lorry carrying them got stuck again this week – Lamin obviously decided to serve drinks rather than get his hands dirty! In case you are thinking that everyone seems to be called Lamin it is because a lot of people are. It means first born son (or something similar). 

Thanks to Ian we have a new website I think its great, check it out and let me know what you think.



Bricking it

Apologies to Abdul for calling him Lamin aka The President. The house is really taking shape now, its amazing how quickly it moves on with a couple of dry days. Nice brickwork!

First photo is one of the bathrooms, second photo the covered verandah (click on photos to make bigger). Correct me if I’m wrong, David?
