So now the bases of the walls were finished it was time to start the rendering/plastering of the insides of the walls. We had no sand and instead of ordering it we decided to save money by diggin it up from a local river flood plain that was about 300 m away. Dave came up with the genius idea of filling our rucsacks with the sand to carry it back as we had only two working wheel barrows (one of which had a flat tyre).
Meanwhile, The Pumas, Dave, Bram & Alex headed into Cusco to buy some shopping and the metal for the window frames. Bram had an epic time buying the metal then we had to transport the 5.5 m steel lengths in the back of the old skool split screen VW campervan back to Azul Wasi with a bag of potatoes, Bram & Alex sat on top to kee it from falling out.
