Habitat for Humanity



Perfect day for a humanitarian (and hilarious) collaboration...with my predominantly North American AVC volunteers in their 20s, local Armenian residents of Gavar village, and 26 protypical teenagers from Buenos Aires...



Most of the sunny day was spent shoveling sand into buckets, then through longest and loudest assembly line ever (leave it to the Argentinians to sing and dance while doing manual labor...really would you expect anything less?), pass the buckets all the way up to the third, then second, and then first floor bathrooms where the sand will be used for cementing and putting up tiles in this apartment building.
