The Experience

We are a family (Franco-Sud Americaine) that lives on a small coconut farm. We fight to live with a logic of sustainability, amid the unconsciousness of modernity. Recycling, planting, taking care of nature and experimenting in the creation of different natural products based on coconut and coconut oil. Our site is located 10 kms from the city of Aracaju, in front of the beach, surrounded and protected from beautiful plants,

Paulo is an enthusiastic person, full of energy. His mind flies fast from one thing to another. Talking with him is pure energy. I've got to learn how to make coconut oil, and Paulo let me grafitti his wall and do painting stuff. I'm thankful.

I went in a very particular moment of the farm as I was the only one volunteer and Paulo was on holidays, so it was very atipical my staying. Anyway, Paulo was very kind to show me a lot of beautiful places around Sergipe. He knows the best places!
The farm is very beautiful with a lot of animals like monkeys, chicken, ducks and others., so you can really feel the experience of living in the middle of the nature. I could learn how to make coconut oil, as it was my goal: Paulo knows a lot about the process and he was very generous to share all his knowledge. I am very grateful for that.

No dia da minha chegada eles tiveram um compromisso então não me deram a carona na chegada, não vá contando apenas com isso. Eu ia passar um mês e fiquei seis dias, não tinha um planejamento dos horários e das atividades dos voluntários. Só que minha saída se deu mais por uma divergência de ideias, cheguei achando que compartilhavamos o mesmo pensamento e no fim não era assim e tudo bem... De modo geral foi cumprido o acordo, tinha um quarto só para mim, um banheiro, fazia as refeições com eles e era muito próximo a uma linda praia, porém não é no local que está indicando no worldpackers.

Aqui quem está escrevendo é Ilona. Foi eu quem recebi bem você no Moulin Bleu e que defini as tuas atividades diárias. Eu fui sempre com carinhoso, disponível a te escutar quando você demostrava insegurança. Logo percebemos que você chegou no momento de desarmonia com o mundo. O pouco tempo que você ficou com agente, foi suficiente para perceber em você uma pessoa que realmente é hipócrita, e com espírito fechado para a forma que vivemos aqui no Moulin Bleu, com certeza. Em relação aos animais, você tive a oportunidade de viver com os 3 gatinhos e os 2 cachorrinhos, e infelizmente você nunca deu nenhum carinho, nem alimentação, nem água, nem amor, que pena. E o cachorro ferido está tudo bem hoje, só graças o óleo de côco, nenhum remédio comprado ; obrigada pela atenção :-)

Experiência completamente gratificante!! Sítio lindo com projetos essenciais para o futuro da nossa sociedade, paisagens lindas rodeada de natureza e animais. Gostaria de ter ficado mais tempo fazendo óleo de coco e brincando com ilumini!!

Às vezes simplesmente não é o momento certo, é assim que eu descreveria essa experiência no Moulin Bleu. O sítio é lindo, repleto de natureza, a orla de Aracaju é belíssima, então se você gosta de natureza, é uma boa pedida. Mas dessa vez, o Paulo estava em um outro momento da vida, com dificuldades de receber voluntários, e por diversos pequenos imprevistos acabei ficando sozinho, como único voluntário. E não estava rolando. Então o fim da viagem foi antecipado, e tudo bem. Um dia provavelmente eu volte, e espero poder acompanhar melhor esse projeto.
