Guatemala Photo Of The Day – Roof Rider

If there was such a thing as roof surfing, this is what it would probably look like.

Watching from below, it was at this point I realized I just how thankful I was to have a couple of locals working with us on Betty’s house.

My new Guatemalan friend navigated the roof construction with the greatest of ease.  I’m sure I could have helped, but the construction time would have been much longer.  At nearly six feet six inches tall, my high center of gravity and huge clumsy factor are detrimental to working high up in the air.

It may not look like it now, but the roof is coming together.  It will product Betty and her family from the seasonal rain showers that come during the rainy season.  It will also provide shade which will keep her house cooler in the warmer days.
