The Trench is done...

On Saturday our neighbor, Armando, came over and finished off a project that we started last month. He trenched alongside the fence, out toward the ditch near the street, then laid the pipes inside the trench, and finally buried them from view.

Now when the rain comes it will drain from the gutters into the underground pipes...

and end up in the ditch for all the run-off water.

Hopefully, this will work to keep water away from the foundation of the house.  We had an excessive amount of rain this year and have heard that many people in different villages around the country experienced the same problem we did with tiles buckling.

 We still need to get our bedroom floor fixed and have the house painted.   Fortunately, we have a bit of pipe left over that Tom can take back and exchange for some tiles to replace the broken ones that we couldn't save.

The home repairs are coming along slowly but surely...all in due time!
