This week La Hesperia welcomed a group of students from Denmark who came to enjoy some hikes around the reserve, learn some Spanish and enjoy some relaxation in the White House. Unfortunately the Danes v Volunteers/Staff football game was called off due to bad weather, but they did enjoy making some chocolate from cacao beans and a night camping high up in the reserve (the weather behaved too allowing a traditional campfire).
For the volunteers, work continued on improving he garden and nursery, we spent one day high up in the reserve reforesting and the Pond Trail had shiny news information boards posted around it.
The reserve welcomed a new addition this week with the birth of a baby calf (another expected any day), and Filomon the mule has maybe gone into retirement (or at least he is having a well earned rest – he is 20 after all).
Any suggestions for a name?
