Buddha terrace

Buddha2Today our statue of a fat smiling Chinese Buddha was put in a place of honour, overlooking the swimming pool and facing the entrance of our meeting room, with Aphrodite behind him and winking at our little mermaid. We are 12 volunteer workers now (not all in this picture) including Mariana and Americo (the parents of Luisa) and the new arrivals Kim and Dina, plus my son Ernesto who visited Saboia twice and comes to check out our new place now.

Avocado Team

Last year we started growing the seeds into little trees and our new volunteers Karen, Ellen, Emma, Matthew and Andrew are now taking care of 20 small avocado trees, also watering the bananas (those big yellow berries) and the coconut, mango, papaya, pineapple, passion fruit and guave trees. The climate here could allow most of them to fruit, except maybe the coconuts (which are not nuts anyway).
