Done First Clay House

First week, we arrived as 3 French volunteers for two weeks to build a clay house. The meeting point was at 2 pm at Prachuapkirikhan train station, we arrived 2 hours before and then waited for 4 hours. At the beginning we were a little bit worried about who we were going to meet and our English wasn’t good enough. But fortunately (or unfortunately) we were only between French people during these 2 weeks as two others French volunteers came along.

When we arrived at the camp, Bird, the camp manager, showed us the clay house which has been made by others volunteers 2 months ago and told us what job we will have to do during those 2 weeks, which was to finish the clay house.

So during the first week we started to put the clay bricks on the wall and do some more because there wasn’t enough.

We also went to a school to paint a wall. We had lunch there with the children. It was funny because the children was very excited to see European people.

In the evening we went at the local market to buy some food and we saw the many fishermen.

After that it was the weekend, we woke up earlier that usual but it was worth it because we saw the sun rising at the monkey temple and then spent the day at the beach. We also went to 2 differents waterfalls, that was great.

The second week we covered the walls with a mix of clay, chlorine, cement and water. We also finished the roof with palmer leaves and made a wooden door, then we cleaned up everything.

The clay house is now done and ready to welcome volunteer!
