It was ok. I made many friends. Hosts didn't know about my arrival even if I had confirmed the day before by phone, so for most of my stay I didn't have a bed assigned and I was never sure where to leave my stuff. I was chided for having "screwed up" for not cleaning after Christmas even if I had done my part of tidying up! Only one shower with hot water. The duties were never clear from the beginning and that led to misunderstanding. I had to depart before the agreed day as I had an ankle injury and according to the hosts we were "too many" volunteers. Cool experience overall anyway.
Esta fue mi primera experiencia como voluntaria y creo que no podría haber elegido un mejor lugar para aprender a hacerlo.
El corral NO es un hostel, es un hogar. Donde cada una de las personas que ahí están son tu familia. La unión que se hace entre staff y huéspedes es muy especial, supongo que eso incrementa que la vibra del Corral sea la mejor de todas.
Muchas gracias Ale, Edson y Luis, por haber depositado su confianza en mí y enseñarme tanto.
Los llevaré siempre en el corazón (al igual que a Vago y Lupita). Fue una de las experiencias más bonitas de mi vida.
