On Saturday morning Margaret came to inspect progress.

Next Monday morning Francis carried on digging a drain for the overflow from the 4000 lire rain water collection cistern. Again he struck rock and had to use the Komatsu pneumatic drill. All this rock cutting is costing 85 Euros an hour !  But this time it was only about 40 minutes.
