We are Mateo and Patricia. After ten years happily enjoying the intimate environment of La Gomera, for complicated motives relating to work we decided to island hop, from the almogrote (cheese spread from the Canaries) to the sobrasada (pork sausage of the Balearics). So we ended up in Mallorca, again surrounded by water, beauty and good vibes. At first, we concentrated our time on family and our attention on the professions we were best prepared to practice: air conservation and species navigation (or was it the other way around?).
Then came the economic crisis. The bubble burst, and took us with it. But surprisingly, it opened a door to a new world full of opportunities that ended up with the birth of BM.
We offer thanks to Guido for sharing his wisdom and experience, acquired over his many hard
years working in fair trade, the emotionally draining challenge of dealing with so many different people from so many diverse cultures.
Here we’ll leave you with some pictures from BM’s birth, of her biological parents, of the Africa Mateo sisters (reading), of Jaume (our spiritual protector), and of the great Guido, the project’s godfather.
