Plastering

Entrance of one of the bedrooms, the stairs are on the right
I am back already 2 weeks from my 4 weeks trip to the Netherlands, where I had to manage the transport of our household effects.

This means that the plastering which started when I left is now ongoing for 6 weeks already and I expect still 2 more weeks to go before it is completed.

In this period we consumed 1000 bags (or 40.000 kilo) of cement and still to go 2 or 3 hundred.

The pictures show some results so far, interior only.

Fish pond

A few weeks earlier I took this picture
Last weekend we had a rather strange activity on our premises. I was not in favor of it, but for the Filipino living with me - family and friends - it was a normal yearly event.

The issue was that, due to the long dry period since December last year, the fish pond was drying out. I estimate that we had only 50 to 70 cm water in the pond left. The water of course is warming up significantly and the fish would die if we wouldn't do anything. My solution was to add water with our pump to save the fish.
