Stove material buying day started off early Wednesday morning. All of our new stove families, students, staff, and interns met at Pop Wuj before marching off to Democracia Market, where a large industrial truck was waiting to take us to buy the supplies for 12 new safe stoves.

After purchasing the chimneys, stove stops, and doors for the stoves the next stop was the brick yard.

With the wind in our hair from standing in the back of the truck, we made two more stops for cement and heavy cement blocks then we were off to Llanos del Pinal for delivery.
