In Atjoni, where the road ends and the river begins.
The people of Ligorio travelled to Atjoni to help transport the rice mill and its engine back to our village.
Pulling the boat up Tapawata, the first of two rapids around which we have to portage our supplies.
Portaging the rice mill around Gaandam, rapid number 2. This rapid is much larger, requiring us to take the machines out of the boat and walk them around by land.
Our arrival in Ligorio quickly attracted a large crowd.
Frank and I after we installed and cemented the rice mill and its engine to the ground.

And finally, one happy customer walking home with a mound of rice!
