The second floor roof went on yesterday. You can't imagine the dust, the dirt and the noise nearly all day, however, it is DONE!! Still a few months work ahead, I think, creating the third floor gompa-meditation hall-yoga hall, but perhaps that's being optimistic, ha ha.....soon we will have Diwali, which is the festival of lights. Unfortunately, it's also the festival of fireworks that just explode with a very loud bang. A popular sport is for kids to throw them under the scooter or bicycle when you are riding along! Happy Diwali.
