Waking in Habitat Marte. The energy at the Habitat Marte presented a bad function.

We woke up tired and with heat, because the air conditioning and the ventilators stopped working during the night.

Because of this, the internet also was not working, and we need to communicate with the crew to alert the probable difficulty to happen the meeting during 12 PM GMT.

Julio and Davi worked to create a small pond in the rural property, one research approach related to organic architecture.

Since the primary mode of contact was WhatsApp, we encountered a loss of communication. The good news: Karin, Kiran and Acatzin organized the meeting.

Breakfast in Habitat Marte: coffee and cuscus with ground beef.
