Day 12

By elissam

We went to Milpuc to talk with the Doctor, collect water samples, and see the quarry. The doctor went through the same survey that we had given to Martin the other day, and she had similar answers and comments. She added, however, that the office in Milpuc most needs a computer to keep track of paperwork. After meeting with the medic, one of the townspeople offered to go to collect the water samples while we went to visit the quarry. We found that the quarry had mostly fine sand, and that although the owner told us that there were various sizes of sand, everything we saw was too small to be used for the filters we want to build. 

When we returned from the quarry, we went to lunch at the municipality, and then returned to Chirimoto to start the water tests from the Milpuc sources.
