We had to evacuate Gravito on Saturday evening as the fires were coming towards us from 3 directions.
The fire was suddenly advancing with intense speed and appeared at the rims of our valley. As the inferno was unleashed we gathered our people, family, guests who had come for a yoga retreat, our dog. With 3 cars we drove through smoke and villages in panic to safety 40 minutes away. We all stayed in a hotel and tried to regroup, take care of each other and prepare for the worst.
