It’s 7am in the morning and the sun starts to rise slowly over the mountains. It seems like whole La Orotava is still sleeping – all I can hear are the birds. With a cup of tea I’m going straight from my bed to the rooftop to enjoy the quiet hours and embrace a new day. It is Monday and I have to work, however I’m looking forward to this day. Looking forward to getting in touch with my colleagues and working on my projects, to doing yoga class before my lunch break, to exchanging ideas with other Nine coliving people, to going to a local beach in the afternoon and to ending the day with a family dinner and guitar session.
