year. A lot of lessons learned and a lot of progress (including goat housing and milking area, biodigestor, big greenhouse, horse stables and arena, chicken houses, Casa Comunal completed, adobe cob oven). We also had experience hosting overnight groups with more than 20 persons, providing meals and areas for workshops, classes, yoga, etc. We are quite blessed.
Gracias to our great staff, to our hospitality hosts Efrain, Vivian and Manuel, and also workers Miguel and Sandra, Roger, Esteban, Jose (carpenter), Jose (horse trainer), Dennis the taxi driver, and our accountant Narly, lawyer Alonso, and to Ami our website designer and travel coordinator. We also say gracias to all the visitors, guests, friends and family, and volunteers and interns for your support.
We are hanging out on the patio at the Posada Rustica, and watching a pair of toucans in a tree by the patio. They are really huge toucans, and so-so close. There are other birds, too. It is raining, and everything is a beautiful green.
Best wishes for a great 2012 to all. Dr. Paulo and Lauren
