The farm in Catrico is open to people all over the world.  There were seven of us "wwoofing"; some for months and others for a couple weeks at a time.  I was lucky enough to meet some pretty amazing people and instantly felt like a part of the family as soon as I arrived.  Each morning started off with hot tea and bread and jam made from the berries nearby.  During the day we all worked—digging trenches in the fields, shoveling manure in the horse stalls, and gathering hay at a nearby farm.  A large meal was prepared every day at 2 or 3 pm and we all gathered around the table sharing stories from the day or from our lives back home.  Our evenings were filled with horse riding and jokes around the dinner table.  There was so much joy and love with this group.  Each person was so unique and interesting and some of my favorite moments were conversations I had with each of them.
