The first couple of weeks here we were wondering why we were doing what we were doing! We arrived early to help clean and get ready for the students. In my wildest dreams I could never have imagined what it would be like cleaning facilities that had not been used for the last 9 months, especially in a country, wooded area. Not only had the facilities not been used for months, we are firmly convinced that no one has really cleaned for years.


The first couple of weeks here we were wondering why we were doing what we were doing! We arrived early to help clean and get ready for the students. In my wildest dreams I could never have imagined what it would be like cleaning facilities that had not been used for the last 9 months, especially in a country, wooded area. Not only had the facilities not been used for months, we are firmly convinced that no one has really cleaned for years.

We are now into our 2nd week of working our normal schedule with the program in full force. We’re settling into our routine and enjoying the experience. The directors of Opera are super nice people and the regularly ask if everything is ok and if we are able to do our work in the time allotted, etc. What a difference from our last assignment.

This is my first set of photos. I wish I had taken before and after cleaning photos but . . . . There will be more to follow; next time they will include some of the participants here.


And we thought we had a small site at Lazy Longhorn! Here we can’t unroll our awning all the way — but we don’t spend much time outside here anyway so it’s not as bad as it seemed at first glance.
You can just see "Baby Sammy" our solar Welcome dog in front.
One of the cabins we cleaned. Don’t you just love the linoleum!
There are two of these 4-plex trailer units. These are the nicest ones inside — the furnishings are mostly old but reasonable.
Some of the little practice rooms the singers use. When you walk past you year a medley of voices.
These cottages are a little step up from the red ones,
except for the bat that lives in the roof of the right side.
The ladies’ dorm.
The costume shop where all fitting and sewing is done View from costume shop to white cottage
Kitchen The "Barn" and office as viewed from the kitchen
The "slab" where students gather each evening View from the "slab". You can just see the dam in the distance.
Sign at the front. The deck is the front of the kitchen Robert and Sammy in front of our RV
