Boquillas Singer

There is a promising rumor that the border at Boquillas will once again open be open to Americans and Mexicans who wish to explore each others' cultures. Until then, this man's voice reverberates back and forth between both countries, as he stands on the edge of the Rio Grande, singing at the top of his lungs, ignoring the perceived borders.

Hi Trevor,

Question, I was reading back threw the construction of your dome and was wondering why do you start on inside of dome when stuccoing vs outside? Also you say this type of construction is virtually free what do you use to make this stucco? Last but not least, somewhere in log I read about an adobe floor installed and wondered how well that works and if so then why poured concrete for your dome?

You have to start from the inside because it binds all the metal together and then you can remove the frames which are on the outside. The sand is most of the material in the stucco, and sand is free if you know where to find it. I have not started on the poured adobe floor yet, but yes, they work very well.
