DSCToday Heath and I woke up at some ridiculous hour having gone to bed around 9:00pm and still jet lagged from the 12 hour time difference. After getting a really authentic Maldivean breakfast served to us by the staff we headed off for our second day of work.It’s the weekend so we weren’t expecting to get much done because all of the laborers have the day off, but we were surprised to find a small army of able bodied men ready to help. Heath continued to work on setting up the inverters while I worked with the crews to prep all the rails and panels. It took a few hours but with all the extra help we were well ahead of schedule.
Later that night we went out to dinner with some of the staff at the Muleeaage and ran into an organized rally of hot rod protesters. Apparently there is a small group of people here who really want to race the tiny winding streets in their suped up cars so they drove them all to the Muleeaage to protest the President to allow them to do so. Given the island is only about a mile long and the streets are about the size of most ally ways in America, it’s probably a good thing he won’t allow it.
