In The Village, night "fishing" for insects can yield a diverse catch.
Night Fishing involved placing a fluorescent tube in front of a sheet of roofing iron that is standing at about an 80degree angle over a bucket of water. Night-flying insects are attracted by the light, hit the sheet and drop into the water from which they cannot escape.
The Catch is sorted next morning, and finds its way into meals during the following day.
Picture are a few exotics, sorted from the main catch of small, black beetles.
When first lit, the charcoal burner gives off a few sparks.
Soon, though, it settles down and becomes a clean cooker for the meal.
The floor is made in two parts:
#1...pre-fab, reinforced, 6 cm thick concrete slabs are laid on the sub-floor struts, and tied down, then
#2...steel reinforcing is laid then covered with a 5cm skin that is carefully laid so it is perfectly flat.
Here you can see the first of 4 truck loads of slats already in place. It was fun to watch the delivery, especially as the truck got bogged on the building site...twice!
