Insider Visit to Barra di Potosi
Here is what we came up with for a Barra adventure.
You are invited to test a pilot experience that supports several community projects in Barra. I am working with friends here to encourage visitors from Zihua to come for an overnight adventure. Think of this as a community service. We only have 6 spots (in three El Nido rooms) so do not feel pressured! First come first served! The El Nido rooms are basic, with private bath, air conditioning and a big gathering space up on the roof community room. We are kind of hoping you may be willing to help us tweek the potential of El Nido with ideas and become Barra ambassadors by telling others how much fun you had. We want to see people who are interested in supporting the people out here doing good work. No one is making any money not usually charged and Lori and I are working for bupkiss, of course ; /0
