In the summer of 2015, Hugo’s team laboured in blistering heat. When we visited them to say hello, I quickly retreated into the shade. The men just took their shirts off and didn’t seem too bothered about the weather.
Craft work is highly valued at our building site. Old bricks were removed from the walls one at a time, and all other dismantling is also done by hand. When the heat was at its most oppressive, we set up a parasol and one of the men worked under it, cleaning bricks – a task that took more than a few days to finish.
