The desire to learn

Around nine o´clock one evening, the project director found the resident engineer in Matiguas, Nicaragua, explaining to a young mason how steel is placed inside the beams, while he busily took notes. Earlier they had been checking the daily expenses. It seems to be a common practice for them to pass time discussing and theorizing about the “whys” of construction. At times it is a reverse process where the mason explains practical questions to the engineer.
