interactivos 16 day 1


the usual thing for a first day: personal and work presentations.

there are great projects here! check the interactivos website to learn more about them. we had lunch together and after that we went to see our materials and where we are installing the device. after a visual análisis of the geography we have determined that we’ll use a palm tree to elevate our condenser, install the composter on the house level and use the slope that goes to the river to extend the second vacuum column that has at the end the clean water output. elevate a water column for 10m on the side of a palm tree doesn’t seems a easy task so we went to collect bambú to build a 10m tripod or some other tool to raise the condenser.

tomorrow more ;)
