We have just arrived on Isla de Ometepe on Lago de Cocibolca to start a month of volunteer work at a permaculture farm. After life on the farm, we are going to start a month of travelling with the honorable Heidi and Charlie Vogel, with guest appearances from Betty and Roy Schindler and Willis Vogel.
