LAST UPDATE:
    September 7th 2015, Berlin
    THIS IS DEPRECATED, AND SERVES AS A (PAST) REFERENCE.


DOCUMENT STATUS & INTRO
This was originally written as a complete process guide on how to use the CHT#1 base (rented) house. The house ("CHT#1") was rented in Season 1 - 3 (2011-2014). In Season 4 (2015), project has shifted to ground-up experimentation in pure rural desert, and is planning to buy land in the same area of northern Lanzarote ("CHT#2"). See 🔗season4 yearly plan] page for that.

Without the house, the manual is mostly deprecated. The document will be cleaned up, abstracted, etc shortly.

The document seems long, and is sometimes embarrassingly specific and banal, but:
    1) it is a reference manual = meant to be used with search, and only skimmed. use your "Ctrl+F"
    2) it's actually not that long, probably about 20 minutes read if you'd go through all of it, but already saved tens of hours to people who'd have to keep explaining the same things to new people over and over again. Imagine explaining to 150 people (who stayed at the house) how to do recycling individually.
    3) it's publicly editable, so if you think you can sensibly compress any parts, go right ahead

THE HACKBASE

    HACKBASE MISSION / VISION / PURPOSE
To:
    * start a [network of] residence[s] for tech / hacking, theoretical work and artistic creation
    * establish a theoretical and practical counter-culture platform that is replicable, scalable and inclusive
    * improve & promote a full-time hacker lifestyle ("quit your job and hack")
    * enable hackers sustainable lifestyle with minimal money needed (~300€/month in 2014)
    * completely rethink the basic coordinates of living environments, in relation to new technologies
    * focus on hacking the basic living infrastructure
    * challenge "the roommate anti-pattern" of hackerspaces
    * research, develop and deploy radical and new stuff
    * go beyond "here and now" and beyond personal needs
Specifically for CHT#1:
    * have the option to escape the winter to +20°C

    HACKBASES
Hackbases are live-in hackerspaces. -> http://hackerspaces.org/wiki/Hackbase
"While  other hackerspaces are just places to go to "in your spare time" or "after work", CHT overpowers the life-work dichotomy by also being a hip  crashpad, and cooking nutritious food."

This Monochrom piece explains it best:
    http://www.monochrom.at/hacking-the-spaces/


    HACKER|SPACE|SHIP
The HACKER|SPACE|SHIP is a concept, one crazy possibility what can be done (or thought) with the hackbase.
"Contained Environment Hacker Habitat mission hosted in CHT#1 [...] the HSS crew lives and works together as a part of an actual space-faring mission, in a tightly isolated, sensor-monitored, self-improving intelligent (cyber) environment, for 3 months."
See 🔗project-hss.

#CHT2TODO #DEPRECATED
    BUSES: COMING TO MALA
(Semi-coastal village, location of CHT#1)
------------------------------
FROM THE AIRPORT
You land at Arrecife Airport, Terminal 1 (international flights).
Destination village is Mala. Take 3 buses (buses are called "gua gua").
The whole trip is ~2 hours and 5€.
1.) Go to ARRECIFE INTERCAMBIO - Use the airport shuttle, and get off at last station (Intercambio). ~2€, 30min
2.) You now see the only (glass) skyscraper on the island and the bay. You need to get to the MAIN GUA GUA station.
*A: Use #3 (direction Costa Teguise) to reach main station, it's only one stop. ~1.2eur, 5min
*B: Or you walk 20 minutes uphill to the main Arrecife station.
3.) Get to MALA with one of these two buses: ~2€, 45min !
THE LAST BUS IS FROM MAIN STATION IS AT 8:30PM. If your flight arrives after 7PM, you need a transport.
    #7 (direction: Haria)
    #9 (direction: Orzola)
4.) Exit at station: "MALA BAJO" (last one, 3/3, in Mala. if you are out too early, follow road downhill):
    looking north (towards the sea / desert), go right to Calle el Cangrejo (last street before end of Mala).
    Walk for a few minutes.
5.) Find CALLE EL CANGREJO 19, on the left side. Green metal garage door and a dead cactus. See: http://goo.gl/QTw7v9
------------------------------
Bus schedules: http://intercitybuslanzarote.es/index.php?lang=en
Also printed next to the main door.


    Or hitch-hike, it works fine. 30km.
http://hitchwiki.org/en/Lanzarote


    ...OR RENT A CAR
It is about 15€ per day, including full insurance.
    Cheapest at the Airport
    To get a discount, order online in advance.
    Understand the fuel policy in your contract
Which company? :
    Autoreisen: This German one seems cheapest - http://www.arcarhire.com/car-hire/car-hire.php - only 9€ per day
    Cabrera Medina: ok experience
Always check with http://www.doyouspain.com, a federated search engine
-----------
It's ~30km drive from the Airport in Playa Honda to Mala.


    INBOUND FERRIES
From Spain:
    Doesn't make much sense, they're more expensive than flights and take 25 hours or so
    ~100€ per person from Cadiz, south end of Spain
From Morocco:
    No direct ferries from Morocco at the moment.
    (There is something in preparation for 2017, see [www.canariasenmoto.com/noticias/tras-el-verano-un-fastferry-de-acciona-unira-fuerteventura-con-tarfaya-17422.html|here].)
From other Canary islands:
    From Tenerife or Gran Canaris, ~40€
    From Fuerteventura, ~15€


    HOW TO COME HERE FROM MOROCCO?
Binter Canarias has regular flights as low as 80€ one way to/from Gran Canaria.
No known direct ferries from Lanzarote or anywhere in Canary islands!


    HITCHING BOATS?
Could be cool.

STAYING AT THE HACKBASE

    INTRO
This is a compendium of how to make your stay work for everyone.
It is a compilation of good practices, common sense, tips & tricks, caveats, and rules.
By staying here you agree with the outlined.
If you don't understand / agree with anything, discuss/mark/ rewrite it.
Non-compliance is sanctioned with p a i n. #TODO


    ATTITUDE BASICS ("Psychology" / "Sociodynamics")
* Keep promises
* If you don't know or aren't sure, ask
* "Be awesome to one another"
----------------------------------------------------------
This roughly holds - from the @PAF manual (similar space in France):
    * Make it possible for others, not by retreating, not by withdrawal, or by being modest.
    * On the contrary, do it by active participation.
    * Through action one offers and opens spaces in which others can take part.
    * One proposes participation in an open rehearsal, a lecture, a conversation, a film or documentary showing and/or by cleaning up and maintaining general space.
    * In other words: one does. The doer decides.
(But if the "doer decides" to do something that disables "make it possible for others" or potentially destroys, then it doesn't work. Use with common sense.)
----------------------------------------------------------
Asking People to Do Something:
1. It's something that should have already been done by not-you -> protest:
    * announce in dashboard with #RTFM tag
    * TODO: #legal / consequence / ?
2. It's something you'd like others to help you with / do -> ask nicely:
    * prepare the place and tools in advance
    * have a clear plan 
    * walk into a room -> present a task -> suggest names


    ... / IMPORTANT / GENERAL / RANDOM
* All things must be returned to their proper (= previous) location after use:
    * ...especially the water bottle @stairs
* The main door should be locked at all times. (otherwise it doesn't stay closed, anyway)
* Be totally inclusive & transparent of your outgoing plans:
    if it's not private, make sure you're letting all others know and so enable them to join you on your walk / beachgoing / getting a beer
* Don't leave anything anywhere ("Leave no trace"):
    clean up 100% of the personal and general dirt left behind you.
    keep information, materials, tools and spaces available and moveable.
    Use boxes. Keep things out of way.
* Kill all insects:
    especially moths, cockroaches, and flies


    SPACE / CAPACITY / LAYOUT / PRIVACY / RECONFIGURABILITY
#CHT2TODO #DEPRECATED
Total capacity of the house:
    comfort = 5 people
    fun = 8 people
    temp maximum = 13 people
    record = 15 people (results were ... a mixed success)
--------------
Spaces
    3 bedrooms (with double beds) = +3-7
    a lounge / living room with 3 couches = +1-2
    a terrace on top floor: possible to pitch 1-2 tents and sleep there any time of the year (see WEATHER) = +2-4
Plus
    extra airbeds       
--------------
->>> also see "Project Sleeping Pods"
------------
Reconfigurability #reconf:
    You can have your own room and privacy if needed.
    you could probably experiment with the setups and switch rooms all the time
    Or just crash where there is space.
----------------
Layout:
    3D house model / map coming soon #TODO


    HOUSE WATER
All water on the island is DESALINATED (from the ocean):
    Technologically impressive.
    System uses ~ 3kWh / 1000 L of water. 1kWh costs ~0.2€.
DON'T DRINK IT. Too much minerals.
Okay for tea/pasta/potatoes; has some aftertaste
#TODO what do you mean by don't drink it ... okay for tea?


    DRINKING WATER
Do not dehydrate !!!!!!
Drink 2-3L of water a day:
    Have your own personal big glass / water bottle and just drink all the time
    If your piss is not clear, drink more. http://www.appforhealth.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/Urine-chart.jpg
----------------------------------------------------
Because you cannot drink water from the tap, water is bought. This costs ~0.5€ per person a day.
Buy 8l bottles for ~1.5€ in shops or from delivery truck.

#CHT2TODO #DEPRECATED

A big white delivery truck with 2 guys from AGUA DE TEROR (yes, really) comes every two weeks on ~Wednesday ~12:00:
*they have a big horn on the truck and are used to knock our doors!
Buy enough - you can hardly buy too much water. Calculate:
    for 6 people = 6 x 14 days x 3L per person per day & divided by 8 liter per bottle = 31 bottles
----------------------------------------------------
Places for drinking water bottles: If you move water bottles, people will get confused, dehydrate and die.
    #1 : stairs next to @room1 , @kitchen only when cooking
    #2 : @lounge (if >5 residents)
Never open a new water bottle if the other one is still up. People will get confused and leave both to go bad.


    ELECTRICITY
Mains switches (to turn on/off) are left of the entrance door.
#CHT2TODO #DEPRECATED
----------
We want to go solar but don't have the liquidity to do it.
----------
#todo : procedure for getting electricity back if you are unplugged (takes 2 days, go to Endesa)
#todo : procedure for paying the bills (if someone else than David needs to do it)


    WEATHER

Stable throughout the year. A typical December day has 20+°C!

In general:
    Winters are stable:
        ocean has 18-20°C
        normal day 17-25°C
        minimum night temperature 13°C (normally 15)
    Summers are moderate:
        ocean has 25-27°C
        outside 23-33°C or something
    All year stats:
        https://www.yr.no/place/Spain/Canary_Islands/Lanzarote/statistics.html

Current weather:
    * https://www.yr.no/place/Spain/Canary_Islands/Lanzarote/hour_by_hour_detailed.html
    * http://www.aemet.es/es/eltiempo/observacion/radar?w=1&p=ca (Radar)
    * [...]

Swimming weather:
    Cloud cover clears around 11-13h. Go there early, so you'll already be at the beach already when it clears up!
    Go to the beach if there is no cloud cover!
    Look for cloud cover on the "detailed" hour by hour weather chart on yr.no (link above)
    Good to swim >70% of the days, probably

WEATHER AT SEA:
WindGuru weather for FAMARA (Atlantic side, surfing, sailing)
http://www.windguru.cz/int/index.php?sc=49328
(Sailing typical wind ~15 knots).


    DO I NEED A SLEEPING BAG
#CHT2TODO
There is bed sheets.
    Fresh sets: @room1, drawers 1 and 3 (under mirror)
Maybe take it anyway:
    You can also use it for trekking / visiting other places
--------------
#TODO: there absolutely need to be fresh sets all the time.
make it into a  protocol for "Departure".
also mark where to put dirty stuff at leave  etc.

    COOKING
Connect the gas: standard gas bottle with a valve.
As far as utensils/pots/pans: There is everything you need.

    
        FOOD GENERAL
    All food is common
    All meals are shared with others
    Usually people have two meals @terrace:
        breakfast ~11:30
        dinner ~20:30
    Ready the table while others prepare food
    Ironing board / temp kitchen surface is NOT stable enough for using or moving it. Don't collapse it


        COOKING GENERAL
#CHT2TODO #DEPRECATED
    Freezing and thawing food:
        either put the thing in the fridge a day early. Put it on a plate so you don't have blood dripping out...
        or take a bowl and sink the thing in running(!) water
    If you leave food out at room temperature (especially meat or fish), the FDA sets the limit for 3 hours
    Do not refrigerate hot food - leave it to cool first.
    Save the shopping bags in left cupboard drawer next to fridge (future garbage sacks)


        KITCHEN TOOLS
#CHT2TODO #DEPRECATED
HyperGrill @terrace, a 4 kilowatt electric plate:
    DO NOT USE IT:
        it is dangerous
        and hard to use
        and harder to clean
    But if you do:
        TEFLON! Do not scratch.
        Turn off all major electricity use before you start, otherwise the HyperGrill will shut down house's fuses
        Turn on the plate and press the button for "Krazy mode"
        Try to feel and understand the food on the Grill 
        Clean the Grill inside of the bathroom tub after using it
        Cover it with a towel
Microwave @stairs:
    Don't use Microwave Ding! sound as an alarm clock for waking up people
    Keep it seriously 110% clean and non-smelly
Blender:
    Clean all parts immediately after use
Wooden utensils:
    rinse immediately
    don't wash with too much soap. soap gets into the wood
    don't leave them soaking in water
Compost: See ->>> COMPOST


        USING TEFLON (*for some, this is not obvious):
    Do not scratch the Teflon pans
    Use ONLY WOODEN UTENSILS inside or near it.
    Do not use/touch/clean chef's main teflon (rounded) pan. Just put it on the stove. Sorry for being so bourgeois.
    Clean with water and the SOFT SIDE of the sponge - never the abrasive green part.
    Do not leave it in the sink and do not stack anything inside of it.
Any damage to the Teflon pans means you buy a new one.


        WASHING DISHES
The sink stays completely empty. It's the only way ;-)
At 6pm dishes need to be done & kitchen ready for dinner preparation.
Used dishes are:
    RINSED with running water immediately after use
    placed left beside the sink to wash
    put in the cupboard above the sink to dry (it's that cool one where the watter just drips out in the sink)
RINSE WELL. Foam on dishes / dishes smelling like soap -> stomach nausea


        FRIDGE
#CHT2TODO #DEPRECATED
It's not in best shape
- don't put anything heavy in the fridge doors (destroys the hinges)
- don't leave stuff to rot inside. Clean regularly.
- make sure every time it was really closed. Double tap.
- when the fridge is empty-ish, run it on 2. When it's full of meat, run it on 4.
-----------
We should probably either get a new fridge, or fix it, or live without one. #todo


        KITCHEN OUT OF GAS
Kitchen gas runs out about every 3 months.
You get a new bottle:
    at Gasolinera in Arrieta (see map)
    it's about 8€
    you have to bring the old (empty) one so they change it

    QUANTIFIED HOUSE
#CHT2TODO #DEPRECATED
To understand resource spending patterns, get better at using less, and make future behavior decisions.
You must check and WRITE DOWN (see below) both the ELECTRICITY and WATER meters:
    When you come !
    As many times in between, ideally every day
    When the residents change (people come or go)
    When you exit !
Location of boxes:
    See: http://goo.gl/QTw7v9
    electricity: left of main door, high (green wooden box)
    water: white of main door, low (white box)

    HOUSE SAFETY
- Be careful about touching electric devices and cables. Might be under high voltage.
-  Members bringing dangerous tools such as weapons, high power lasers,  radioactive material or explosive material should declare them
- Don't run with scissors


#CHT2TODO
    MEDICAL
- There is FIRST AID in @ROOM1 - The closet on top-right!
- Alcohol 96% use in the case of open wounds
- After-sun lotion for your sun burns is in the bathroom
- Pretty cool PHARMACY is on main Mala street (direction Guatiza)!
- Next to the Pharmacy is THE HOSPITAL:
    You need to have your blue EU health insurance card (the dark blue one)
    you don't have one: you may be able take someone else's and they might not notice

    DENTAL CARE
Important: All dental care in Spain is private! Neoliberal bullshit.
The only public service is tooth extraction and they don't even tell you where to do that.
Fillings cost 50-70€ and urgent canal treatment 400€+.
You might get re-compensated by your European/commercial insurance (?).
Please floss.

SvenG: what about people without a EU insurance card?
D: if the switch trick doesn't do it for you:
    you should probably look into commercial insurances
    you can pay for the medical services in cash

    CLEANING
Clean a lot.
If something's dirty, clean it yourself or get help.
Baseline: 2-3 people work together, every 5-7 days, for 1 hour.
Don't use chemicals too much, except to mop the floors.
After you mop, discard water immediately
What to do:
    Vacuum (especially stairs)
    Mop the floors (especially lounge, kitchen, everything)
    Trash ->>> TRASH
    Fridge
    Toilets
    ...
Mop the floors:
    "Lejia" (bleach) is traditional, effective, and probably pretty toxic. Add 10% to water.
    Bio detergents: #TODO

        VACUUM CLEANER
Please Empty after use. [the thing tends to overheat]. Do it outside of the house so you don't dust everything. Directly to the garbage bin.
DO NOT vacuum these materials [damage!] - use a broom for:
    Broken glass
    Wet dirt / garden dirt
    Cockroaches or anything else super disgusting
    Fluids (obviously)

#CHT2TODO
        WASHING MACHINE
- Fill washing machine to the full, collect dirty clothes from others if needed
- Pick up dried laundry before dark when clothes get wet of humidity 

    
    TRASH / RECYCLING / WASTE
#cht2todo #deprecated
Inside the house:
    COMPOST:
        * at @frontyard (end of cactus field trail)
        * all uncooked vegetables and fruit
        * no meat (meat decomposition produces toxins, except if you wait much  longer & attracts organisms we don't want there, like raccoons)
        * no lemons / oranges (skin doesn't decompose well)
    RECYCLABLE:
        * everything together - separate 
        * paper, plastic, cans, glass -> green bags
        * #1 : in the corner next to the main door @lounge
        * #2 : @stairs just out of the @kitchen
    NORMAL TRASH:
        * use bags from shops as trash bags
        * containers are 50m away, in both directions of the main door
Recyclable trash bins:
    * are at the end of our street, 100m before main street
    * PAPER = blue
    * PLASTIC & CANS = yellow
    * GLASS = green

    BUDGETING
* Collect and record all bills from shops - food & hardware!!!
* Give all bills you'd like reimbursed to the treasurer immediately

        CONTRIBUTING FOR YOUR STAY
#OPENBUDGET / ACCOUNTING / #SUBFINANCE
The monetary contributions are necessary to sustain this house!
Everyone contributes. Otherwise, "someone" always pays. Guidelines:
    1. House is run in a way to keep all costs (expenses, food!) minimal and transparent
    2. All the costs are equally shared. except if someone is in the position to contribute more - thanks!
    3. The residents cover their full costs (or find a sponsor for themselves)
---------------------------------------------------------------------
#CHT2TODO #DEPRECATED
CURRENT SUSTAINABLE CONTRIBUTION (FULL SUBSISTENCE):
    Rent, House expenses, Commonly owned hardware = 8€/day
    Food = 5.5€/day
    Total = 13.5€/day 100€/week 400€/month
---------------------------------------------------------------------
SUSTAINABLE CONTRIBUTION (LOGIC):
These are not fees - it's sharing the needed basic costs.
All expenses are logged and transparent.
First see this simplified example spreadsheet:
    http://hackerspaces.org/wiki/Subeconomics
Basic coordinates (these are from the #SUBFINANCE spread):
    The house costs ~ 400€ a month ~ 13€ a day ~ 4800€ a year (this includes rent and basic expenses)
    (as of September 2013) Uptime is ~666 days ~8000€.
    People days (residents lived here): ~1000.
    So current ratio (pd's / days) is ~1.5 pd / day , ~566 pd / year.
Anyway that's about 8€ PPPD ("per person per day").
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Sustainability principle:
    * You can not expect to just bear the costs of "cost per current day, divided by number of residents"
    * (the house doesn't have residents there all the time, and then "someone" would have to cover for the empty days)
In this way, the calculation is more like:
    "all costs per running year, divided by number of resident days"


        FUTURE OF FINANCING
1. Grow stays / year:
    We need to go from 560 stays/year to 1000+ stays/year.
    This way, PPPD would be ~4€ (rent).
    This would mean something like:
        >1 person 80% of the time
        >2 people 60% of the time
        >4 people 40% of the time
2. Encourage bigger contributors "who can":
    if 50% contributed 2€ more than Sustainable, then 50% could contribute 2€ less.


        BUDGET: FOOD:
    is about 5€ PPPD if you shop properly
    look at #subfinance

On the top of the house. It's awesome. Great views.
* Eat & cook here
* If it's raining:
    put things under the roof, especially the wooden stuff
* Don't leave anything on the terrace after the meal - take dishes down & rinse immediately
-----------------------------
TERRACE GARDEN:
    water stuff every morning or evening, but not during day heat
    kill all the greedy insects (spare the most fleshy for Special Gastronomy Experiences)

At night, the stars can be a massive asskick (as can the moon, holy cow) and
the whole atmosphere is one simultaneously conducive for relaxing and getting work done.
You can for sure work as steadfastly as the mountains stand still, like a boss. 


#CHT2TODO #DEPRECATED
    @LOUNGE
The main working area
* Open the windows when you get up. Close them when you leave the house!!
* mind the cockroach danger:
    don't leave any food here
    close the main door immediately after yourself because they tend to race inside. it's true!!!
* keep the place 100% clean:
    absolute zero trace of rolling and smoking on the surfaces at all times. put all related paraphernalia back in boxes after use
    don't leave your stuff around


#CHT2TODO #DEPRECATED
@BATHROOM / @TOILET
It's pretty small.
* Carry your personal towel with you, if you want to keep sure it's personal
* Don't leave water under the sink

If internet in the house is down - temporary / alternative solutions:
(1) use Sociedad's wifi (on the main road of Mala, 8 min walk, can't miss it, just under the Farmacy). Pass: ???
(2) Use WIFI @AREPERA bar/restaurant, at the other side of the village:
    * 10 minute walk (direction south, to Guatiza)

    * ping outside/internet address ('ping gnu.org', `mtr 8.8.8.8` is great for debugging internet connections through Google DNS).
    * ping should be around 100-200ms, with very little drops ... Or around 600ms max in very bad windy weather.

    3G INTERNET
David: I suggest you get a YOIGO 3G PRE-PAID SIM card:
    There is a Yoigo office just under main bus station in Arrecife - inside Spar
    20€ for a cool deal - 1GB for three months (1st month free + 2 x 8€)
    IMPORTANT:
        Ask for "OPTION INTERNET" to be enabled
         Make sure your phone is properly configured with the SIM card at their shop!
        Give your phone to the dude behind the counter and leave only when the thing works properly!
-------------------------
....YOIGO DISCUSSION...
Mark:
    My experience with Yoigo is very bad. Bought a SIM card, tried it in 2 phones,
    internet connection is not working most of the time, anywhere on the island.
    Only way to keep a 'stable' ssh-connection was by usiing mosh (http://mosh.mit.edu/ ).
David:
    I think you might have had it misconfigured - you need to have "allow data roaming" on, etc ...
    For example, i routinely had 300kb/s at CHT#1 in Mala
Mark:
    afaik I did, because otherwise it wouldn't work at all.
    Maybe they had some major disturbance. 
Domen:
    Same for me, 3g with yoigo is VERY slow. It works, but for example loading google maps texture
    data takes few minutes. Opening SSL page is an adventure.
    <--- David: i've heard this for Famara area before!
Mark:
    Go to yoigo.es
    Log in (or get a password over SMS for first time)
    Click 'Mi Tarifa' and then on 'Datos tarifa'
    Down is a button to activate fast internet (first 500MB is €8, every upgrade of 300MB is €5; resets every 1st of the month)

    ANTIPEST / ROACH WARS
When you enter, no one might have been there for 1 month, in a summer, or so......
That's NORMAL for subtropical climate in the summer - there might be some ROACHES in the bottom floor, the @lounge.
Killing roaches:
    Not with shoes. You could spread eggs everywhere. :D
    Just smash them with some paper and throw them out!

Prevention:
    Clean the house every 5 days!
    Use mop + bleach (lejia).

The electric water heater tank is located in @stairs (next to main bedroom).
If you don't have hot water flowing (recognized by no water coming out when you open hot water):

    Do not change the temperature regulation (should be on marked spot).
Don't forget to close both valves when you leave.

#todo: confirm the positions are correct:)
#todo: is this proper procedure for closing? should water be let out?


#CHT2TODO #DEPRECATED
    LEAVING THE HOUSE (VERY IMPORTANT!)
If you are leaving for a longer time and the base is to be uninhabited for >1 or 2 weeks...
Re-check every part of this list when you leave, so you're sure it's done!
Basics:
    clean so you make the next person happier! at least to the condition you got the house in.
    make sure there are some fresh bed sheets available
    make some pictures around the whole house
The fridge:
    take everything out of the fridge and leave it open
    what is left and you can't take with you - give to the neighbours!
The food:
    make sure you do not leave anything perishable, or open, in the kitchen! (like half open rice or pasta) otherwise: PEST PROBLEMS.
Disconnect:
    electricity (all fuse switches down)
    water heating (regulator to 0, valves horizontally)
    main water (outside)
    gas (unmount pipe)
Close everything:
    close and lock terrace door
    close and lock patio door and small window @room3
    close & lock all windows in the house
    close & lock windows @lounge downstairs (the vents)

    Move everything (table!) under @terrace roof.
    Close all windows

Local shops in Mala:
    * Sociedad Mala: a bar - beer and cig's
    * Pedro's - very small, strange, bizarre, we never use it (on the main road of Mala)
    * Arrieta (5km North), the Gasolinera. Okay selection, not very good prices.
    * Almost the same thing is with the shop in Guatiza (5km South).
Don't use them if possible - bad selection and prices.

Buses are cheap. Also, hitch-hike.
Highly recommended:
    Mirador del rio
    white beaches between Arrieta and Orzola
    Haria
    Famara
    the volcanic park!
    drive around the wine country
Not recommended:
    don't really go the south like Playa Blanca (David's opinion : long way, boring, rocky, tourist trap)
    ignore Puerto del Carmen (except maybe for partying on the weekend)
Consult THE MAP (link up) for more cool places.
-----------
#TODO: add more ways to find parties / links / Facebook pages / ...


    PARTYING
How to find a party? -> just ask Dora and Alfredo, they know everything
Friday, Saturday -> Arrecife
Sunday -> Teguise (La Pamera)


    PARTYING IN ARRECIFE
Arrecife is the capital of the island. Around 75.000 people.
Places in Arrecife / also see ->>> THE MAP
    Charco de san Gines (La Minoca)
    Tambo (9-10pm), then
    Callejon Liso or La Roca (0am-4am)
    Te Veo (last, omg)
Then chill out, and leave with ~ 5:40 am bus from main Arrecife station. Congrats.
Be  careful: there is a possibility you meet cool people who take you on an  adventure, while visiting multiple homes and you won't get back at CHT  before 3pm ;)
Don't get robbed while you are crazy drunk.


    HITCH-HIKING (to Arrecife)
From the big road (10min on foot from the house, under the hills):
    Head out of Calle el Cangrejo, reach the road (where bus station is).
    Walk through desert for 5 minutes and reach the motorway.
    There you are. Hitch by the roadside.


    BUSES
(Look up for more info.)


    PUBLISHING / SOCIAL MEDIA / ...
You can publish any photograph:
    if the people on it agree
    if it doesn't incriminate anyone ;-)
Please mention the space to promote it !!!
