Day 1

Alfie gave two lectures at the seminary and had one Russian language lesson while our electrician, Andrei, tore apart our hallway. He told us there would be a lot of dust and he was right. He said that this first day he was trying to do all the major dust work. He had to search for the existing wires that have been plastered inside the existing walls. That means starting at a junction box and breaking the plaster with a hammer until you can tell where the wires go to. He made a whole for our new breaker box and installed six new plugs, seven new switches and many other things. Here is what the hall looked like at the end of the day. There is also a picture of Andrei our electrician. I will not post picture for Day 2 because I’m just getting day 1 photos up. However, day 2 Andrei’s drill broke but he still got much work done. He ran most of the necessary cables and the hall is now ready for the building to come destroy and rebuild. The looks about the same but a little cleaner with wires hanging everywhere.
