Just when we think it is a good time to take some rest after the designs were finished,the hope was crushed by the news that construction starts right away.
Hence, we put on a pair of gloves and start to do the cleaning of the site.
And we found some lovely creatures and some not as lovely as the former.
Among the participant of the program, none of us have any previous construction experience except Daniel. Therefore we are all waiting for his order after we finished cleaning the site, the communication on the construction site is even harder because the workers of Mr.Song who are gonna teach us how to build speak only local dialogue. That means we have to do two translation, the local students translate what the workers said to Mandarin, and we translate that into English.
Fortunately, the workers are very patient to teach us step by step from the mixing of cement to laying base.
The first step of all the construction in this project is digging. In order to build a stable structure or sculpture, we have to dig the dirt out and create a stable concrete base. The soil on that site is clay, which is extremely hard to dig, not mentioning the rain increase its stickiness. We also found out that we are short on tools, we have to share two hammers for the whole construction，three people share one brick trowel.the most advanced tools that are available to us is one circular saw.
