Paty and Isra are nice, kind-hearted and very generous people. The surrounding nature is wonderful, very quiet, a pueblo 22km from Leon. The hours of work are very flexible and the tasks are fair. The idea of the project designed by them is beautiful. However it is quite dirty and disorganized and the hygiene habits are quite different from what I'm used to. For travelers its important to know: the wi-fi signal is bad and the washing machine doesn't work (you have to take a train to laundry in Leon - and pay - or hand wash in the bathroom). But overall it was an interesting experience.

Fue una experiencia nueva para mí en todos los sentidos, principalmente en esta época de oscuridad que vivimos, siempre agradeceré a Paty e Israel por su apoyo y comprensión, son buenas personas, y pese a lo que está sucediendo en España y el mundo se que saldrán adelante de está crisis, la vida y el universo los proteja siempre.

Llegué a la Xana unos días antes de que pasara todo esto del coronavirus con idea de quedarme aproximadamente un mes. El recibimiento y los primeros días, la verdad, que fueron genial, todo pintaba muy bien. Parecíamos afines todes con nuestras diferencias y similitudes.Compartíamos el día a día y el trabajo de una forma lo más armónica posible. Pero después de la primera semana empezó a ennegrecerse el ambiente, la dueña parece ser que tiene falta de B12 y como consecuencia de ello, el estrés y la ira se apoderaron de ella hasta el punto de tener que salir de allí por curarme en salud.

Mi 1er experiencia en WP no pudo haber sido mejor q pasarla en el Xanatorio! Paty e Isra son unas personas con un corazón enorme, dispuestas c/ momento a brindarte lo q necesites, super atentos y amables, te da la sensación d sentir el calor d una verdadera familia. Hemos recorrido bastante la zona, comí demasiado jaja y compartimos risas con las locas líndas d Blanca y Bea. Y para sentirte más acompañado en c/ momento tienes a los perretes d casa, cthulhu y sica súper mimosos. El trabajo es sencillo, son flexibles y puedes manejarte a gusto! Ya m daré un vueltin p/ volverlos a visitar! abrazO

Estar en la Xana es como ir a la casa de tu familia. Paty e Isra son unos amores que me cuidaron, me alimentaron, me llevaron de paseo y me brindaron su amistad y cariño. El resto de la familia se brindan de la misma manera y es un placer pasar tiempo con ellos. El "trabajo" es muy sencillo: ayudarlos en lo que necesiten, sin demasiado rollo. También te dan la oportunidad de gestionar tus propios proyectos. El paisaje es un sueño. El frío no se siente porque el corazón está contento. Mi gratitud y amor infinitos para Paty, Isra, Blanca, Sica, Cathu y Bea. Los llevo para siempre en mi corazón.
