New Roof

“I enjoyed watching this man lay a new thatched roof, one piece at a time, and he seemed to enjoy the appreciation as well. In an earlier expedition, Chris and I had the good fortune to watch a woman weaving one of these pieces the native people use to create a roof. She showed me how. It looked so easy when she did it.” – Zoe Helene
