The daily life

Waking up around 7:00 am I started the day by fetching drinking water (a problem presently in the Paraiso) in a small recreational area with another volunteer, or I gave food to the animals (hay).

Then, breakfast. No. The breakfast. The best I’ve had. A sublime ginger porridge with everything you could put in it: seeds, pieces of fruit, spices, jam, and so on.

We also took advantage of this time to distribute the morning tasks. The dogs had to be taken out, the donkeys let out, the stables cleaned up, Stevie the pig had to go to her enclosure and some old donkeys needed daily care: they were brushed, their eyes, ears and hooves were cleaned.
