Bio Toilet

I wanted to present my Bio Toilet in the best possible way, but, here you have it:
There was Calima today - hot temperature, 35°C, with dust from Africa and strong wind - which brought down the structure, but, luckily, the functionality is not affected :)

Solar Electricity

At last my solar system is installed.
For those technically inclined, specs:
2 panels 230 Watts each @24 volts.
Average daily delivery 1500 W h (60 Amp h)
Battery bank 520Amphx24v=12.48kWh
Inverter 1,6 kW (cannot use any tools that need more power than that).
Shopping time! Need fridge/freezer, tools, appliances.
It is all so exciting!

Last week it was burning just above Los Llanos (forgotten to take pictures), this time the eastern side of the island is in flames. Picture was taken from my place.
