During April, work continued steadily … just as our practice should. From the basement walls, the remaining bitumen was carefully removed, manually with hammers.

In this way the original beauty of the brickwork re-appeared.

More brickwork!

Upstairs, work on the windows continued steadily due to the kindness of working visitors from all over Germany. In this way thick layers of varnish were removed from 150 out of 300 window wings!

Break-times are well-earned and spent with splendid meals.

And conditions for relaxing are near perfect now that Spring has come.

We soon hope to begin working on our future meditation room – preparations restoring the magnificent ceiling are under way.

So that finally, our future KMC Germany will come to possess its original radiance again – something for everybody to enjoy.
