Day 2: Feels Good Man.

Another day, another early morning. I’m 9 hours ahead of everyone I love (well 9 hours, 8 hours, and 5 hours but mostly 9). Getting up at 5am gives me time to chat with all my friends as they’re enjoying their evenings.

Today was pretty straight-forward. I took a couple more shots of the workshop before Marcell arrived…

Today we got to step things up a notch.

First we attach the insole and shave it down so it sits flush with the shoe last…

then we attach the lining (which I put on upside down. oops, no big deal though!) After that’s done, we lift up the area around the nails and put in sole glue…VERY strong stuff.

nice work so far! if only those words came from Marcell :(

then we take the nails out and get everything shaved down and smooth (unlike my face at moment. more on that later)

and to finish up the day, on goes the outer! Lining up the medallion is one hell of a job, but nothing these hands can’t handle.

Now I head back to the hostel.
