Here is the finished product. I was told that the new road is used by more people than ever before. People with their tractors, cows, water buffalo-drawn carts, motorbikes and walkers use this mud-free road.
Most people asked me to sit in the shade while they did the hard work. No thanks, I'm not a sitter.
The youngest child to help rake out the stone was 4 year old Bon Tin.
Even the children helped rake out the stone. This was no easy task in the heat of the day.
About a dozen neighbors came out to rake the stone evenly on the road.
At $35.00 per truck load of stone and $350.00 later the stone was placed on the road.
Another view of this muddy road.
Here is a road in a village that my friends and their families live on. During the rainy season this road becomes quite muddy. Being in the shade this road stays muddy for 2 days. I decided to lay down stone on this 4 block road after I became tired of walking in mud.
