Habitat for Humanity in New Orleans was at the top of our list of things to do this summer, especially given what’s gone on here since Katrina. Yes, it felt like volunteer tourism, but the houses themselves, and the families soon to live in them, welcome all the sweat help they can get. The safety brief to start it out quickly transitioned to power tools and roofing under the Louisiana sun. Java oversaw our progress and got dirty with everyone else. Many thanks to Dan, our fearless project manager, who will always have our respect for the work that he does day in and day out.
