  • Description


    We live in the middle of a cloud forest, we have a camping site and work with recycling.
    Dad is a builder and master carpenter with bamboo. Mom (me), is an artist and writer. The daughter is an artist too and the child is young and loves cars. We homeschool. We also produce yogurt, cheese and handmade soap. And among the crazy things we care a fire that takes 6 months on.

    El papá es constructor y maestro carpintero con bambú. La mamá (yo ), es artista plástica y escritora. La hija es artista también y el hijo es pequeño y ama los carros. Hacemos educación en casa. También fabricamos yogur, queso y jabón artesanal. Y entre las cosas locas cuidamos un fuego que lleva 6 meses encendido.
