Between visitors and hammocking, we have been slowly building our bread oven:
The adobe bricks were macheted to size.
The body is igloo-shaped with stacking bricks in an upward growing dome curving in on itself. The front will be a double arch over the door and a chimney spout to go over the top and out the back.
Mingo, Marcelo's father (almost 80 years old!), was here to help out... or rather boss us around! :)
We laso took a few trips around Misiones. Here we are in O´paybo (school for natural health) in Alem testing and prepping for a future workshop to transform a wood plank shed into a luxurious mud composting bathhouse.
Many birds around... this variety of toucan is particularly noisy and likes to watch us work from the treetops. (This fellow in the picture, however, lives in the bird park and was very photogenic-- notice the galiant pose. The wild ones aren´t this friendly.)
