I just finished my first week of farmwork on the other side of the world. I don’t want to be big-headed, but I think it’s time for a first conclusion: It’s fun, it’s pretty challenging, but it’s grateful work. Sure, I’d rather sit in the sun and dream of my pool full of money, but from nothing comes nothing. At the end of the day you definately know and feel what you were doing and how you earned your buns, but the conditions couldn’t be any better: The boss and supervisors worship your work and thank you for it, there’s a strong team spirit between every single one of us and everyone is in a good mood. The chemistry is right and that shouldn’t be taken for granted at all. Even when picking zucchinis no one is complaining. It’s a awful work, but that’s part of every job. So overall I really appreciate my job, I am happy for doing this for 88 days and I am thankful for this experience ?
