Day 19 - Countdown: 9 days to go

The site continues to take shape amidst the constantly unpredictable challenge of the weather.

The goal today is to finish positioning the reinforcement bars to make the arc, and a LOT! of wiring is needed.

Elsewhere, others work on some of the columns.

Bamboo is being used to create imprints... one of the many small touches that will give the park a Filipino character.

And of course, work continues on other aspects of the park. Below, Jim works with some of the students on the area where the pearl will set.

A lot of things to work on and keep track of... and we're hoping nothing falls through the cracks. The trick is just to do each small task, one at a time...

... all the while keeping our eyes on the prize, and remembering not to take things too seriously...

At the end of the day, James Hubell takes a moment to contemplate the work that has been accomplished so far, and the challenges that remain, now that we're getting close to the homestretch.
