Dam-tot-Damloop: September 22nd

Day 3

23-06-2019 | 22:26  Day 3 - RikakoIt was our first day of visiting the building site. We departed the hotel at 8:00 am which was a bit early for us. It was about 20 minutes ride from the hotel to the building site. The weather at the building site was cloudy and cool so that it was nice weather for our first experience on constructing a house. We had two major tasks to work on: carrying the dirt and making the base of a roof. It was endless to dig dirt and it was a tiring job. For the roof, it was fun to hammer the nails but when we flip the wooden frame of the roof, all of the members cooperated to rift and move it. After we ate the lunch, there was a thunderstorm and it suddenly started to rain heavily, so our first work experience ended earlier than we expected. For tomorrow, we look forward to have a wonderful weather for the entire day! Posted on: International School of Amsterdam
