Apart from renovating the Eco-classic cottages we do a lot of work in the garden so guests can enjoy their stay even more.500 vulcanic stones (each about 20kg), 30 black stones, a huge white Granite as bench, a truck load of sand and a truck load of gravel, 20 bags of cement and many other items for the 3 bath rooms had to be carried 200 meters to its destination. This was about 1000 trips with the weight on their heads....the local way to carry things, even fridges i saw.
Anyway, the real problem for a foreigner is to find the people which do the work. Still 3 month to go to finalize all the projects wee have in mind. Sure the breakfast place and chill out will be bigger, a new chill out is created right now with sun chairs, a small waterfall where you can stand under, a nicer manicured garden, renovation of bath rooms in the Eco classic cottages, maybe a small rain proof breakfast place too. Most of the shooping is done lately in Hubli, Goa, years ago much came from Delhi, last year a 7,5 ton truck from Gokarna to Bangalore and back full of items for the farm. Since we do not have to bring any cloth back to India from Germany and Spain we do have our luggage always filled with nice and handy items.
Up there the new chill out with waterfall.......in progress.
