Day 6 on site

The walls were set in place and finally the glass to cover the grave placed in the middle of the memorial arrived. It took ten guys to carry it up the mountain to the site. Meanwhile, the students were, ahem, lucky enough to help carry the slate up to the site. One by one. By one. A challenge presented itself when the team had to figure out how to drain water from the glass to the edges of the slate tile. Below, the locals unboard the extremely heavy piece of glass.
 The slate tiles that the students carried up.

 The stone surrounding the glass will be jagged and will be quite the feat if walked upon to gaze into the reflection of the glass/ancestors.
