I started this morning with yet another good yoga session. Not as relaxing at yesterdays, because this was much more physic involved to bring up our chacras, but still good to do some exercise in the morning. After breakfast I worked in the garden, we dug holes and planted seeds, and I loved it!! Wow. Great weather and Rosario, the gardener, was really nice and relaxed. Compared to yesterday in the kitchen when I just felt like I was disturbing when I had to ask what to do all the time, I felt really comfortable here and I enjoyed the work. Also me and Leona got off around 12 instead of 13.30, quite nice, since it was a hot day and we were sweaty it was perfect to take a shower, because there is only cold water so it’s not as nice to do it at night, haha.
Once again I had a great lunch. I love that everything here is organic and vegetarian, and it’s done with love, and it’s even blessed, haha. I’m so damn happy that I don’t need to ask if there is any meat in the food, or fish or chicken, and still not really believe if they say there isn’t, haha. Here it’s always vegetarian!! And delicious! And also, I really enjoy being around other vegetarian people. Not all the volunteers are vegetarian, but some of us are, and all the devotes and the residents. It’s so nice to be around people who understands you. It’s actually a quite weird feeling that I hadn’t thought of before, I guess I’ve just been used to defend myself and my thoughts all the time. But I really really enjoy being in a vegetarian community :)
After lunch we did a small excursion to some caves Francesco had visited before, we walked up the hills in the sand and down another hill. The smell is sooo bad close to the water sometimes, it’s like rotten eggs and rotten fish haha. We went into a hole in a cliff, and in another hole in that hole so we got to a really cool cave inside.
Very nice! After that we walked even further away to a beautiful view. It was a nice escapade :) We are a really nice gang here, I like everyone, I think people who comes to this place are special. Like Daniel from Denmark, it took one second to love him, he had such a good energy, he was like a big kid with a huge smile. There are some people you really like at the first second you see them, like Romanech in Holbox, Daniel here at Eco Truly..This world is filled with lovely people.
Today it’s one of the volunteers birthday, Amy. Francesco had made her a big birthday cake today when he worked at the kitchen, so sweet. It was delicious. She turns 27 on the 27th, and in Canada (where she’s from) it’s called the champagne birthday. So we went down to the beach and had some fire lit there and champagne, pisco, wine and some snacks, some music and just chilled out and got to know each other a little bit more. I have really chosen to be here at a week where there’s a lot of things going on, first the full moon party, today Amys birthday party, and apparently tomorrow since it’s easter there will be a lot of people coming to the beach and to Eco Truly Park, so this whole week will be special!
By the way, it’s sand everywhere here. In my bed, in all my clothes, in my ears, the bottom of my hair..you just never get rid of it. Haha.
