Setup a new factory on an Alentejo farm, by the time it was my fourth factory that I set up so we known well the process; smashing, built walls, racks, stands, put the lights and after a week or two the smell of resin was already in the air. It’s was the best place to work in an old shed, among the country view, the sheeps, eucalyptus trees.
