Una gran experiencia en Mariposa. Rex y Jane son de las mejores personas que encontré en USA. Lo que obtienes a cambio del voluntariado es muchísimo más que hospedaje y comida. Gracias Rex por recordarme lo fácil que es ser feliz, por tu constante buena energía y por feeding the sheeps 🐑 ✌️ . Jane una genia, gran equipo geminiano el nuestro! Me voy con el corazón más que contento y con ganas de volver! Abrazo fuerte a ambos!
