Sunday afternoon family outing.
We visited our old “cabin” (very first picture). My mother’s side of the family had rented it for over 30 years until it was sold. Since the whole valley was sold and not only the house, we didn’t really had a chance to hold on to it. When the owner changed he did some renovations… Not all to our liking and he wouldn’t renew our contract anyway. Sometimes we drive out and take a walk there.
It is a truly magical place, there is no cell phone reception and when we still had the house there was only an outdoor toilet, no running water and no electricity. Not everybody’s cup of tea, but we all loved it there in the summer.
The middle pictures are the tree constructions my cousins, brother and I built when we were smaller. I can’t believe they’re still standing… we must’ve built them about ten years ago. We always had archery tournaments, sword fights and just were outside all day long (note: until four years ago i was the only girl, so no, i didn’t really play with dolls). My uncle has a knack for survival training so he made us do all sorts of dares… and showed us stuff. Once we made a inipi (sweat lodge).
Last picture is the small chapel of the village. Yes, our house, the chapel and another house behind ours was a whole village once upon a time.
