Day 6

Settled near a small stream.
Found a bamboo grove still within sight of the beach.
I'm still refusing to go too far inland.

If whoever did this to me wants to be entertained
He or she better send that interesting thing over here instead.

For I am building my fortress of solitude here.
Bamboo + Half a coconut shell = shovel
For now, some sort of sand wall as a wind breaker.

Managed to make a crude shelter, but
I will probably end up raising a hut on stilts later.

For good reason
did the typical rendition of a barrio house
is a house above the ground.
Safety from predators
Reduced risk of disease

It’s slow and tiring work.
But I feel it will pay off a lot later.
