Colima: Casa de Carolina
Carolina's house is just a block from Carmen's. The crew who arrived a week earlier than we did already started on this project. Our family joined in and finished the floor in a speedy day and a half.
More mud mixing, more tile cutting, more mudding, lots of grouting, extra bruises on our knees and knuckles...
Carolina earns an income by giving massages in her home. We hope to give her massage room a facelift to improve her business. She supports her husband who's an alcoholic with a heart condition and mobility issues.
Serena was over zealous with this tile mudding business and caked herself in a layer of concrete everyday.
At Carolina's house, instead of a kitty, Serena found a neglected puppy dying for attention. They became fast friends after she shared her lunch and walked the dog every time she went to Kiosko for a "Bubu Lubu".
The Colima team who's still there will be putting up a wall to separate the bathroom. It's not often that we see an actual toilet (no seat though!) and sink in a home. We can't wait to see what the finished room will look like!
