A week ago we arrived at the eco-farm Quinta Cabeca do Mato, which is run by an English couple that moved here 28 years ago. Most of it got burned in the wildfires of October 2017. For more details see their blog http://quintacabecadomato.blogspot.com/.
Sylvia and I are helping the family to rebuild the place. During the heat-wave last week with temperatures above 40 degrees, Sylvia repainted the public bathrooms and I repaired a hydraulic ram pump (details in the next article) and helped roofing a new house.
