    ITS CLAY TIME!!


    Hola !
    (inglish below)

    Soy alexis y los invito a construir con adobe y barro.
    Comienza la 2da temporada!
    El año pasado construimos con mas de 50 voluntarios una hermosa casa de tierra.
    Fui una temporada increíble para disfrutar y aprender todos juntos.
    La técnica es tipo COB o adobe.
    Una mezcla de Tierra y hojas de pino es todo lo que se necesita para hacer paredes hermosas.

    Este año vamos a terminar los últimos detalles de la casa y comenzar otra!!

    Mi casa esta en San mateo rio hondo en oaxaca. Junto a un hermoso rio y en el bosque.
    El pueblo de san mateo esta a 15 minutos caminando por el bosque ahy podrán hacer compras y conocer gente, comer algo tradicional y más!
    San mateo es un hermoso pueblo turístico y tradicional de montaña.

    El Hospedaje es en una cabaña vieja del bosque. También Hay un terreno grande donde acampar con agua de manantial para tomar y junto al rio.

    Importante:**
    el voluntariado no incluye comida. Lo siento mucho pero mi economía no me permite apoyar con la comida.
    Generalmente hacemos comida colectiva y compras colectivas.
    Todo es muy barato en el pueblo.
    **porfavor planea tu viaje bien y llega temprano para arreglarte un espacio de día y con calma. prefiero recibir personas antes de las 4 pm.


    Hello
    I invite you to join building my clay house. My technique is cob mixing clay with pine needles.
    We will be building the house walls and other walls with a few different techniques.

    I live in San Mateo Río Hondo in the mountains of Oaxaca just next to the river.

    The housing will be in a shared
    cabin in the woods and if it's available a camper van.

    It's important to know that I don't provide food. I'm sorry about that but I can't afford it.
    But we have a great shared kitchen where we eat all together and share expenses.
    ** please arrive before 4 pm , plan ahead your trip and arrive as early as posible.

    We aso do some gardening and carpenter works.

    The town is very close walking and it's a beautiful place to hang out and meet the local culture.

    See Ya!
