Hi! So we had a pretty lame experience at the second farm we WWOOFed at... we didn't even take any photos. Not even one! Imagine that: Ashley not taking a single photo for weeks. That's how bad this place was! Here's a list of our complaints:
-mud everywhere -vicious mosquitos -mean owners -completely unorganized- they made us dig holes all day or clear the rainforest with machetes- we felt no love from anyone- they made us clean up their rusty garbage paint splatter gunk- we learned nothing about organic farming-
And so we left!
Just like that!
Up and gone!
See you later!
That is the beauty of this WWOOF program- if you don't like a place, gather your courage and LEAVE!
We have learned to be very clear with our needs and expectations when dealing with new WWOOF hosts. Most of them seem to be looking for free workers and do not care about sharing their knowledge about farming.
Anyway. We tried out a little bit of housesitting instead of WWOOFing for a week. We doggie sat a pup named Diamond. She's such a beauty.
Ashley finds a banjo and enjoys!
Joel finds a guitar!
This is where we are.
Joel plays the spoons.
Idyllic photo moment.
I do not know why the dog spreads its legs out like that.
Joel finds coffee plants and finds himself in heaven.
We walked the dog 34 times that week. Can you see the huge volcano that swoops down to the ocean behind Joel?
