End of season meal

Every year, after the hotel shuts, we have a meal with all the staff from the hotel and their partners. This year was no different and we celebrated it on Saturday in the restaurant “El Molin de Mingo”

Starting on the left and going round the table the people in the photo are as follows:
Samantha (our daughter) who has been away a lot of the year but has helped when she has been here, when needed. In previous years she has helped in the kitchen, reception and cleaning rooms.
Hugh who works as farm labourer, on site naturalist and photographer.
Alice; Hugh’s partner.
Maria who helped Joe in the kitchen with food preparation and in reception.
Montse who helped in the kitchen and cleaning rooms at weekends.
Sebastian (our son) not only has he helped a lot in the hotel when we were short staffed (particularly when Mari Carmen fractured her foot) but he also contributed tremendously with the new web site and with many different ideas.
Patricia (Mari Carmen’s daughter) who helps with the cleaning and in many other ways including, reception and book work.
Joe; chief cook amongst many other jobs.
Mari Carmen who has been working with us the longest, does many jobs including; receiving guest, preparing breakfasts cleaning and even painting.
Lidia (Sebastian’s partner) also was a great help when Mari Carmen fractured her foot
Eduardo; Patricia’s husband.
Chichi (on the photo below on the far right) Montse’s husband

So a big thanks to everyone who has helped contribute to the success of the hotel and without whose help we would never be where we are today.
