A busy week with super Paco.

Paco is a friend very interested in permaculture and self-sustainability. He came to visit and stayed one week at Quemao Viejo.

Here, reaching the place by bike, with our friend Tom ( maybe suffering a bit ?):

Next morning, as permaculture advices, make yourself an idea of the whole thing:

and before we could realize, there he went, with a pickaxe making some room for backpacks…Shit! this man is going to put us all to work! That night we slept like angels after all the digging!

and as a result, yes! there is some more space in the cave:

He also found the way to put up a temporary shadowing in front of the cave ( with a net used to pick up almonds that we found near by):

Quite a busy week indeed. We got a visit from José Miguel’s family:

Alfonso, a Local from Zarzadilla de Totana, gave us a magisterial lesson on grafting ( and hunting technics!_No photos thought_ Which I doubt we’ll ever use…but if mountain goats and wild boars keep eating the already in bad condition almond trees…:

We had great times at night, with a beer, and enjoying the full moon. Its a pity I don’t have a tripod yet to make good photos at night. As opposite as daytime, which was quite torrid, at night, up there, it was pretty cold. Anyway, it was nice to check out that our little solar installation was working and we could enjoy music and light:
