An education

The whole reason for our visit to Tanzania was to learn about digging wells using the percussion method - for our water project* in Vyulya, Kenya. Mike, our teacher, generously gave two full days to both show and tell us how to do it.

Part of our second day was spent in learning the tools involved. (Ropes are critical.)

Mike's father-in-law, Smitty, was visiting from the Oklahoma Panhandle. He lent his wisdom to the discussions.
