Minga – Chile

Posted by rod - 22.07.2010

Now this is an interesting tradition from Chile called Minga. Especially the island of Chiloe is famous for involving the whole community to literally move a house. To move a house the complete structure has to be somehow lifted onto tree trunks which  will serve as rollers pulled by oxen. Some houses even have to be carried over the sea. There is also a wine called La Minga which is making use of this tradition. Images via tectonicablog
