But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds of the air, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish of the sea inform you. Which of all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this? In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind (Job 12:7-10)


We're all seasoned travelers and naturalists. Ulrike is a biologist, André an agroecologist and inspector for organic agriculture. He's also an outstanding cook.

We enjoy the out-doors (although Kaela prefers TV and electronics): hiking, , scuba diving, horseback riding, windsurfing, dancing, capoeira, good food and especially: good company.
