We couldnt wait to get started, already three months later than planned the building construction project was hampered by rain and delays after delays mean that it is falling far behind schedule.
Installation of the climbing wall is technically complicated, its not rocket science but then climbing is never going to get popular in zero gravity....
Naz and Ronny now live in the rafters, oblivious to the burning sun, like two monkeys rescued from medical research that couldnt give up smoking. Torque wrenches and Hilti drills wielded like samurai swords.
Don Eduardo, the regal project manager and senior engineer (not to mention designer) calmly overseeing progress from ground level spends far too much time drawing on walls like a four-year old with a set of crayons. Mystical cave drawings will be discovered one day when the climbing wall gets dismantled. Maybe I should buy him a pen and paper.
Doz is the project chief sweat-producer, sloshing around the site, legs turning a vivid pink despite his scampering off to the shade at any opportunity.
The climbing centre is under way, every day brings more progress and more excitement for us all, keeping opening day in our sights is important as time ticks on by.
Watch this space for progress reports.......
