Driving around last night we stumbled upon the most awesome pesebre (nativity scene) we’d ever seen… as if the scene itself wasn’t enough… this one has live goats, geese, sheep, a chicken, a hen!!! Naturally we had to stop and get the full story from its creator, Fabian Martina, who was busy feeding the animals (on loan from a friend through January 6, 2013).
Fabian tells us his pesebre is constructed from a large wad of colored construction paper (makeshift boulders), a TV stand, and potted local plants (milón di seru, vines, aloe, etc)… a long-standing tradition… but the animals are a 2012 addition! (and he swears they don’t wake him up at night)
Fabian’s entire yard is a veritable tropical Christmas wonderland… bringing holiday cheer and quirk to the entire neighborhood of Montanja while simultaneously raising money for community development! Visit this amazing pesebre [first left when you hit the Montanja soccer field] through January 6, 2013 and support this wonderful emerging neighborhood.
