Day 4 rocked. When we got to the site, our team did some serious clean-up. We cleaned up nearly 2 tons of garbage--cans, shingles, carpet, wood, glass bottles, tires, windows, doors, rusty car parts, cars, buckets, bicycles, mattress springs, etc., etc. It was such a random sampling of junk. Now the site's pretty clean. While we cleaned, we also stood in awe of the backhoe and its driver. Who knew digging trenches could be so enthralling to watch?



Backhoe. Ooooh, aaaaah.


The gleaming backhoe shines like a beacon in the desert.


Monica and Talvy get cozy in the dirt.

Hank intensely contemplates the digging while the students (not pictured) feverishly pick up piles and piles of rubbish scattered around the site.


This weak-sauce chunk of compacted sand doesn't stand a chance in the all-powerful hand of Dennis (the contractor).

Junk moving.

    I'm pretty sure that Hank looks extremly dissapointed that you weaklings couldn't dig your trenches by hand. He looks all melancholy and bummed standing there with his shovel and nothing to dig.
