Grande mulher! That experience is worthles! It's a very peaceful place in the middle of forest. Very secure. It's just great to be part of this project and experience nature. Alex is a great alternative, strong woman. She is unique and beautifull ❤️ thank you Alex for being part of my story. It was a pleasure and I will see you again. Damião is a great boy and there is no words to describe little wild baby Ana Victoria. You will feel like in a movie scene watching her with Mikas (the cutest cat). I am happy they exist 🙏❤️ grande abraços.

Inesquecível! Minha experiência foi desafiadora em termos práticos. Acredito ter evoluído muito, já que não possuía conhecimento sobre jardinagem, plantas e cuidados necessários. A Alexandrina é uma mulher com autoridade e conteúdo a respeito da natureza. Se aprende muito com ela. Agradeço a paciência comigo. Todo esse mês ficará num espaço bem guardado no meu coração. Minha vida toma novo rumo a partir daqui.
