June Donaldson and Edward Garry live at an altitude of 2,600 metres in Mosoj Llajta, Yotala, 20 minutes from the colonial city of Sucre in Bolivia, South America. Using earth and stones from the land, we have sculpted beautiful buildings which compliment the high desert landscape and incorporate creative and innovative elements of design.

We have designed a high quality hotel in Sucre for guests who want to get off the treadmill of travelling from city to city in South America. At Sky Hacienda you can dictate your own timing and choose how to enjoy your stay, whether it is doing very little or exploring the best that the Andes in Bolivia has to offer.

Christmas is always a challenge when family and friends are so far away.  But as the song goes - "If you can't be with the one(s) you love, love the one(s) you're with".

Our volunteers Sina and Sky are staying with us over the holidays and they helped us decorate the living room. 
Sky decides to decorate himself.

On Christmas Eve our caretaker Carmello, his wife Lydia and their children Jose Miguel, Mariana and Adriana visit us to the see the fairy lights and to receive their presents.

On Christmas Day we prepare food for the barbecue.  Sina is vegetarian, so we make veggie kebabs.

They look pretty good!
Sky loads the barbecue.
The day is made complete by being able to talk to our loved ones now that we have a fixed landline.  If we could have transported them over to Bolivia the day would have been perfect!
