    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have a barbecue or meeting place, a large semicircular stone and wood construction, which incorporates a lot of recycling material and has a central fire where we cooked and shared with groups of various kinds who come to visit the place, families and children, schools, tourists, universities, among others. Workshops are also made and sometimes we shared around the fire with friends, music and drums.

También se hacen talleres y a veces compartimos alrededor del fuego con los amigos, música y tambores.
