This is a follow-up on the previous post about Naw Aung (see Tool Repair). A lot of people at the base camp were watching when Naw Aung fixed his machete. The next day in the field, he stopped clearing line long enough to teach one of the younger crew members how to do this. [NOTE: Naw Aung's handiwork is clearly visible on the handle of his machete].
