Since there was no sink in the main house, the washing of dishes was done in the helpers' "dormitory," where we slept. Dishes are moved back and forth between the two houses in the large orange bin seen below.

The helpers' dormitory is a property that they do normally rent out to British vacationers.
Walking up to the next level on the hill, above/behind their houses, you'll find the pool, gardens, solar panels, and compost.

Terry and Ginny's friend Tog from England just bought a neighboring house on the bottom of their hill. It's already booked to be rented out in February, so we spent lots of the days working on Tog's house.

We celebrated Christmas at Tog's, so when I post about that you can see more pictures of his house that we worked on.
When needed, we would refill up jugs of water from this nearby fountain at the bottom of the hill. It was naturally carbonated water from the mountains-- an interesting taste when you're expecting crisp water sin gas.
