Teaching at the schools is followed up by planting an Inga plot ot the school with the students. These will later be used to demonstrate to the students, past and present, and any of their parents who want to come, how the system works. Photo Dr. Guillermo Valle, 2011.
The little house for tourists - part of the eco-tourist facilities - has been extended to at least double its length. Here are year's intern students and FunaVid staff in fronte of it.
Dr. Valle, Dr. Dodson and Dr. Valle's assistant, Rigoberto, were all attended the graduation of the students who had done their internship at FunaVid. A proud day for all.
