Thank you, Micha

The Free School bears my name but this project would never have succeeded without the support of my partner Micha Challal. Thank you, Micha.

That's Micha under the shade of the palm hut that Lucino (right) built at the Churupal property.

Micha and Lucino

Micha's an artist. On our second visit in May 2003 after the topographical chart of the property was complete, Micha made sketches of how the school buildings might look.

While abandoning our original plan to construct in the rectangular colonial style of the splendid Posada Caribana (seen below), the essence is retained through tiled roofs supported by wooden pillars. High windows provide ventilation and additional light.
