Here we go, short and Gero aside from tending to the cattle and enjoying the antics of all the animals we spent quite a bit of time working on some construction. Using earth bag building techniques and under the strict observations of our hosts' teacher, we added on a few layers of the soon to be theater space for our host who was a professional puppeteer before taking on a farming career. It was hard ...

Then we grabbed our luggage from the hotel and walked to the train station, where we got ...
