Hi. I enjoyed my 'vacation' very much. You can have such a nice and interesting time too! I stayed at the wonderful tropical island of Curaçao (Netherland's Antilles) for three weeks. I could stay there (almost) for free in a small wooden cabin, in exchange for some help at the plantation. Depending on the time of year (what fruits & vegetables are ready for harvest then) there can be a lot more to eat from the land than only bananas and pumpkins. In my case I had to buy some food at the supermarkt once a week.

Of course you can order the organic vegetable pack! This plantation is one of the growers in that project. Growing organic vegetables at the island is not new, but this way of selling is. It works very good, much better than every grower trying to reach his/her own customers. That's the reason why now they sell much better, so they need more helping hands!

Yeah, but does being a ninja come with a dental plan? And what about this tiny ad?
