So today while concrete was being poured to finish the bridge, Maia watched the workers and Bugsy watched Maia.
Because of the amount of concrete trucks, steel tubes and eventually elephants that will have to be brought up the hill to the African barn, Scott decided to check the condition of our bridge. As with most things he was told it was fine, but it was not. There were numerous rotting supports, so the guys re-built the bridge using steel to replace the wood. They built guard rails (which none of the bridges here have) and laid the framework for the cement. Today the concrete was poured and in a couple of days the bridge will be ready for the load of steel tubes that is waiting at the bottom of the hill, to be brought up.
Now construction of the interior stalls of the African barn can begin!!
The almost finished product. Scott will now spend the afternoon being very overly detail oriented, working the concrete to make sure the finish is as close to perfect as possible.
