As the group recovered over night from Day 1 of our environmental portion of the brigade, we were full of energy and ready to head back for the second day. After a couple brigaders finished tilling the field that we had worked the previous day, we spent most of this day potting plants and helping to put the final touches on the chicken coop!
After a half-day of work, we had finished our goal for the day. Luckily, this gave us time to talk to some of the community members who were the leaders in environmental work. They had worked along side us during our time there, and our conversations with them allowed us to better understand how our work fit in to their model for how they planned to use the field and the chickens.
Lastly, at the end of the day, some of the older men and women in the community came over to where our group was working and gave us a cultural presentation, meaning they had painted themselves a deep blue color and performed a series of song and dance rituals. They also allowed us to participate with them, and the our entire group ended up learning how to dance to the songs they sang for us!
