9th December 2014 – Road Repairs & Badminton

It was a hot day today, which made the second phase of repairing the road even more taxing than yesterday. Moving the reinforced concrete into place over the culvert was a mission, and required a fair bit of manpower (I say manpower, but we were gifted the help of the multi-talented Nur, RDA’s housekeeper & amazing cook!). Perhaps we should have made the concrete mould slightly closer to where it was going, but I stupidly opted for a flatter section to make the slabs (rather than levelling out a section a bit closer!). “Ach well”, as they say in Scotland.

Stage 2 complete!

Once again my friends, neighbors and guides came to lend a hand. The road is fixed – hopefully it will survive the torrential rains of the coming months!


When we finished we played a bit of badminton – an impulse buy during a recent shopping trip to Mataram. The car park is now established as a badminton court, with bamboo being used to hold the net! At the moment our play is restricted to daylight hours, but who knows, perhaps a few floodlights could make this a nighttime activity!

  3. Howdy! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when viewing from my iphone. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to correct this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share. Cheers!
