Another week has passed and we are getting closer to finish the whole kitchen. After telling my team we will have a big BBQ in the end of the week if they finish all work they started to work even harder. We started every day at 8am and worked until 7.30pm! The progress was visible every single day.
The big ovens from the firing side
The smoke recirculation channel
Brick by brick the outter walls ar set
Looks like a stove
First side wallls are done
Both sides walls ready including the metal chimneys

The chimney is groing higher and higher
small stoves including workstations
What a huge building. Roof is not ready yet

Many diligent hands
Chimney grows more..the african way
Work is done eveywhere
First workstations are used
A plastered cooking island. Two stoves. First mixture of plaster was not working. We needed to remove it and try another mixture
The whole building with the morning sun
Is this a jacuzzi? Sealing the covering
One day of last week I had the chance to visit a parish inside the national park
Daytrip into a parish inside the national park
plenty of hippos there
As promised I organized a big BBQ with a whole pig, a goat and some beer for my team. While I prepared the food, the team went on working very hard
Motivation arrived on friday noon. We slaughtered a pig for them…
…and prepared a traditional bavarian suckling pig.
Saturday morning the walk to the BBQ place
Fire is burning already
They’ve never seen a whole pig turning over a fire
Nevertheless work was going on
while the pig was turning and turnng
Later a goat joined the pig. We had 25 men working hard and being hungry
anticipation is big
Ready for the big meal. 25 craftsmen which worked the last 2 month with me were waiting for their food
Today I had a last chance to hike in the mountains and enjoy the great view over the national park and the beautiful area
Last time hiking in the mountains. Soon I have to go back to germany
