Title: How to make a billybilly on a rainy day part 1



As we thought the kids need their own vessel to go ashore we decided to ask Siti to build us a billybilly, one of the most common vessels on the water around here.
If I may guess the billybilly was before the dugout canoe. It is simplier to make and Siti could make one in about 3 hours with aid of his son Abraham.



The most important tool is the machetas



Then you need 8 big size bamboo logs, bamboo grows at a rate of 3cm per day!



Each log is fitted on a stick



Maria is preparing the rope that will be used to tie the whole construction
