My time at Bona Fide (or the poop, the shower, and the spider)

Bona Fide, where to start. This place has opened my eyes to so many new things. From the spiders (I am happy will never see again but will always remember the screams) to hiking a volcano  for 8 hours. But it was all an amazing experience.

Beach day! 

Beach day! 

           The first day there I thought it was going to be like cabins and outdoor bathrooms but it was the completely different.The first thing was we all shared a room. Everyone! boys and girls. One thing ill always be grateful for was Jovin for letting me sleep on her bed all four nights. I also washed her underwear and ill never let her forget it. It was going to be a great way to get to know each other. they then procceded to show us the bathrooms. They were out side and had specific stations to do your buisness. But what suprized me the most was the showers. They where outside! only three walls outside no door. no nothing. My mind went crazy. I thought I was not going to make it alive.

           But as time went on I got used to the showers and the bathrooms. I got to meet new people and hear thier stories. We did a lot of activities that always kept us busy like weaving baskets, making chocolate, fermenting cabagge and carrots that turned into kimchie. I got to meet ´people like Sarah and Eleena (and we exchanged instagram and snapchat). The leaders there taught us about permaculture and it made me want to grow my own garden to make tea. Im really grateful for the people I met and I wouldnt change the experience at all.
