2 Der Lago Titicaca
A live report from Lake Titicaca

Dear Diospi Suyana Friends, as mentioned elsewhere today’s building report comes from Puno.  At our Aerial Tower Site in Andahuaylas the subcontractor has delayed work on the planum for the installations and has started digging the four building pits which will contain the mast’s foundations.  I hope he will work will conscientiously and in such a way that I can adequately check on what he is doing from a distance and won’t have to make the arduous journey to the site too often.

On the Hospital compound between the guard’s house and the children’s playground we have started making the preparations for building the orthopaedic workshop.  We want to provide our orthopaedic specialist, who will start his five year stint here in the autumn, with a suitable working environment to help him deal with the manifold orthopaedic needs of our patients.

The Hospital’s New Storey is hopefully progressing according to plan: tiling, applying the screed in the stairwell and starting to install the ventilation ducts in the second stage of construction.

With best regards from Lake Titicaca and wishing you a blessed weekend, Udo
