Bio-construction

Years passed by until we could realize our dream - bio construction - adobe huts - natural material - but now we are close to finishing our first two huts.

Our architect for bio-construction sent us three bio-construction workers - that was last year in Mai. (I can't believe that time is flying by so quickly). They were working peacefully and in slow motion, taking advantage a bit too often for their mate break 😏..... only when my husband joined them and did an excellent work, things began to change. Now our good friend and talented construction worker Fabian and his coworker Junior are continuing - and what a good work they do.

However, this blog is about our workshop with the adobe architect Rosario. It was a wonderful experience. The group was adorable, open-minded and absolutely uncomplicated. They all - 20 persons - slept in our community room and had a lot of fun. I take it as a good omen that our first workshop went so smoothly.

Lavalleja, Minas, Ombú-Forest

Camping de los cuervos


We were quite motivated by our friends in Piriapolis to abandon our campo for two days and to join them there. Not only Piriapolis is worth seeing, we also went  to see mystical and really magical places such as the camping "Laguna de los Cuervos". This place is absolutely fascinating. I'm happy that I know the place. It won't be the last time I have been there.

Ombú-Forest, Lavalleja


There are only two Ombú florests in Uruguay — one in Lavalleja and one in Rocha. They reach a height of about 50 feet, and they can live as long as 500 years.
