We’ve Moved In!

19 Jan

So everything has been finalized on the property transaction front. Bank transfers went through, every level of government has been paid, and we have property title in hand. Exciting stuff!

We’ve also moved onto the land! We’ve been busy working in the orchard, harvesting bananas, watering, building a kitchen, compost, toilets, and everything else. Lots of work to do!

Sleeping on the land is incredible. There are sounds of birds and the forest, butterflies and hummingbirds flutter around, you can hear the subtle sound of ocean waves at night, and the stars are incredible.

Our two little kittens have moved in as well and they are having as amazing time stalking each other and climbing our palm trees/kitchen/tents.

There’s LOTS and LOTS of work to do and we are READY FOR YOU TO COME VISIT! Check out our page on volunteering and come stay! Flights are impressively cheap (often under $500 from the US)

Also, you may have noticed a name change on the site to “In Lak’ech Village”. “In Lak’ech” is a Mayan word meaning “we are all one”. It’s literal translation is “I am another you” and is the customary greeting in Mayan culture.

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!
    It’s official:
    Your dream = reality. Welcome to sweet, sweet resolve.

    Now’s the fun part I guess. 🙂 Loads of work to do, and every bit of it the product of your craftsmanship and customization. Soo cool. So inspiring. So much love.
