This hotel is slightly expensive but is very very beautiful. The food was nice and rooms are big and spacious. They have a library and game room where one can play many games. The view from hotel is breath taking. The hotel has its on animal farm and so all milk products are super fresh. over all very nice place to stay.

Immigration was easy, no queue, but I did have to fill in some useless bit of paperwork and buy a bus ticket ...
No words can describe how incredible week 2 on project was. We started by finishing off the Eco-brick benches around the new fire pit, and the outdoor ampitheatre (which involved a lot of shoveling and mixing cement by hand). Roisin, Will, Josie and I had a lot of fun with Don Jaimie shoveling wheelbarrow after wheelbarrow of what seemed like never ending amounts of cement and sand and rocks and sand and "agua". I lightened, or attempted to lighten the mood by making "Will" ...
