Yesterday I tweeted "Seems we have skipped Spring and gone straight from Winter to Summer!"
That Summer weather resulted in Nicola and I working in our garden. My task for the day was removing bricks from a rockery created by a previous owner at the bottom of the garden and moving them to the top of the garden. The plan is to recycle them in some future project.
This task made me think back to our time in Argentina and our friends at 22 De Enero. On our very first working day we moved bricks for Daniel and created a human chain to assist the process.
Yesterday I had to shift the bricks myself and I realised how much quicker it would have been with the help of others. This reminded me of Germán who had told us that our help had accomplished in one afternoon what would have taken him several days to do on his own. Indeed this was true of all the projects we worked on in 22 De Enero.
Many hands do indeed make light work.
