Arriving in Madeira was a welcome to the tropic and joy in the middle of the European winter. I have stayed in Machico, a village far from the noise and populated with white houses with terracotta roofs. The apasibity of the place envelops me and invites me to an inner travel impregnated with blue sky and semi-deserts flowers.
Two hours from Berlin and in the middle of the quiet German countryside this is Lebensgut. A small community of families gathered in a different relationship with the system to the big cities. In the middle of the community, fields of fruit trees and a biological garden that allows them to have first quality food, a small artisan bakery and a fragment of time that stops and transports us to another time.
Even the ducks hide in winter, a few foolhardy tourists who come to tour the lake or gorges. Well, that has some privileges lake with snow becomes magical and an incredible place to meditate and create stories.
