Rock Bathroom & Grass Roof= Terrill's Dream

Rock bathroom (shower-side) added onto our house. Walls up, waiting for a cement slab on the roof.
Other side of bathroom (latrine-side). Air bricks are dispersed along the top for ventilation but I was dismayed to learn that they're at eye level and people can peek in at us. We'll have to make 'blinders' for those.
This view is looking over the top of the bathroom wall towards Kaabong (south).

The guest house has a completed grass roof. Almost ready for inhabitants...
We hired Ik women to tie the grass in bundles to be thatched.
Some Ik men seeking shelter from the hot sun...still very little rain in Karamoja. It's starting to come but very slowly.
This is Pastor Jacob, Ik PAG Pastor in Timu. He's helping us in the project and also enjoying the playground.

Things are really coming along. Can't wait to be a guest. Love the guest house. I have really enjoyed your blogs lately. Thanks so much for sending all the pictures. I am saddened about the news of the death of another Ik boy, though. Love to both of you.
