    Using local materials... and cheap labour!

    A new resort under construction on Kamala Bay's Millionaires Mile, has Stonemason's currently facing some of the concrete with granite cut from very, very, local material.

    3 labourer's were working with sledgehammers, probably because rain squalls are making it quite a pleasant day ....

    This is the beach, opposite resort, complete with natural granite boulders >


    Part finished >


    One of the 3 labours breaking up massive boulders (on right) >
    Cheers, Rob.

    With your Avatar, YOU qualify for the job better than I. I just love the way they use materials which are part of the terrain. If they run out of granite boulders on the building side, I wonder if they'd dare cross the road and start hacking into the beach-scape?
    Cheers, Rob.
