My experience in mazo de mon thought me way more than I could have imagined, about strength, about sharing, about being open to teach and learn. Laura is an amazing hostess, a strong woman with a touch of fairy. I am truly thankful for everything. Is a place where you can get out of your comfort zone and be in touch with the real world. I hope the best for that place, and everyone I got to share, although for so little, so much .

Estive por um dia e para mim foi muito. A Laura foi super gente boa me tratou super bem!! Tivemos uma boa relação e não tenho do que me queixar em relação a ela. Em relação ao outro responsável, não me lembro o nome, não gostei nada da enerdia dele! A acomodação era a pior possível, me deixaram num celeiro sem nenhuma condição, a cama deveria ter uns 540 anos, o colchão deveria ter 1.80cm eu tenho 1.87cm, o celeiro não tinha porta, não havia banheiro, a cozinha era um ambiente insalubre, e não havia energia tbm. Quem for, saiba que vai estar incomunicavel na area da fazenda.

Felipe was a night and half a day in my farm. I ve been communicating by WhatsApp for a week I ve send him videos so that he understood were he was going and had a conversation explaining how things are here. Everything, no internet, live with basic comfort. I ve asked him to come with good shoes, and a few other things and he didn't. I ve pick him up in a village at 80km from the farm drove him in my free day to buy shoes, and once he arrived at the farm it was almost dark and he was so much in shock that he decided to not give it a chance, ok that can happen, I respect his choice so then I drove him out again till a hostel in the closest town.
My house needs some fixing yes, I m not rich, yes but there's nothing insalubre here, I ve raised helathy kids here, anyways
Is pathetic to defend myself about the prejudice of an stranger. So for next volunteers pray attention to my explanations , look my videos, ask, do not supose because is desgastant for everyone to have a bad experience for you and for me.A weist of energy and money.
And even more desgasting to get a bad review of someone that is totally out of context.... and that didn't even try.
Anyways this review world seems to function only when someone wants to be negative.

Querida Fernanda
Me sorprende y entristece la negatividad que transmite tu reseña. Durante los días que compartimos aquí no te mostrastes de este modo hacia nosotros. Entiendo que se debio a una question de timidez, cobardía o hipocresía.
El espacio que se te ofreció o para tu descanso estaba limpio. Estoy segura de ello. Tus picaduras se produjeron tras estar en contacto con cabras y ovejas en la cuadra o moviendo su estiércol. Obviamente tubiste una reacción alérgica. Ninguna de las otras 4 voluntarias que habia en ese momento ni nosotros teniamos algo parecido. Quizás por no querer molestar, no te comunicaste con rapidez suficiente de lo mal que te sentias y rascarse solo lo empeora mas. Nosotros Siempre pedimos a todas las voluntarias que se cambien de ropa antes de utilizar los espacios de descanso. No se si tu lo hiciste. No soy de las que busca culpables. Soy la primera interesada en mantener las instalaciones que ofrezco a los que venís limpias y en el mejor estado dentro de mis posibilidades. El buen descanso es basico.
Desde el momento en que expresaste tu gran incomodidad y malestar he mostrado gran empatia hacia tu estado y puse todos los medios a mi alcance para solucionar la situación. Te cambie de lugar por las dudas, te di ropa de vestir y de cama limpias, te ofrecí que te ducharas tantas veces como lo necesitaras, ofreci de llevar tu ropa a la labanderia, te di crema de calendula y cuando decidiste que preferias marchar me supo mal porqué contaba con tu colaboración y me parecias alguien competente. Únicamente lo expresé, pero respeté tu decisión evidentemente. Aun y asi te quedaste 4 o 5 dias más por tu propia voluntad, ya que se te ofrecio de acompañarte al bus el día en que tubiste una pequeña explosión nerviosa-emocional fruto del malestar que sentías fisicamente. No te lo reprocho. Lo entiendo. Despues de haber pactado que te marcharias antes de lo previsto y estar todos conformes, parecía a que te sentias algo mejor y mas relajada. No había malos sentimientos. Te dedicaste a cocinar ya que decias que te gustaba y pasamos veladas charlando junto al fuego. Te acompañamos al autobus y tomamos algo juntos para despedirnos... Entiendo que la situación no fluyo cómo todas hubieramos deseado pero intentar resolver, improvisar y adaptarnos a los imprevistos del camino no es algo que se hace para seguir adelante y crecer? EN POSITIVO.
Yo a mi perfil mencionaré que vivo en un medio donde pueden haber arañas, garrapatas, pulgas, abejas, mosquitos, culebras... Y otros bichos así que aquellas personas sensibles a picaduras o con tendencias alergicas que vengan preparadas o que me avisen para no exponerlas a actividades que les puedan perjudicar... O sencillamente que no vengan.
Ahora tu Fernanda sabes que eres alergica estos bichos indeseables. Pero yo no soy uno de ellos. Mucho amor y
Buen viaje!!!
