Big Matty

The final leg on our 3,000 mile journey. We crossed the Salt Flats, where many a land speed record has been broken, and stopped for lunch in Wendover, Nevada where many a Mormon has been corrupted by the evils of state line gambling. We opted not to stop under the blinking neon lights to tempt lady luck. Instead, we pushed on, through the strangely beautiful desolation of northern Nevada.

BEAUTIFUL RESTORED TRULLI IN PUGLIA, ITALY. Have you ever heard of a trullo?


This is a traditional dry stone hut with a conical roof. The style of construction is specific to the Itria Valley, in the Murge area of the Italian region of Apulia. Trulli (plural) were generally constructed as temporary field shelters and storehouses or as permanent dwellings by small proprietors or agricultural laborers. Nowadays the surviving trulli are popular and are often bought and restored for general use. However, anyone wishing to restore a trullo needs to conform with many regulations as trulli are protected under the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) world heritage law.

Berlin on a Platter

The hotel is one of several buildings that have gone and are still in the process of going up in and around Zoo in an effort to change the area from a rather unlovely transitional neighborhood into a destination in what is now known (teeth-grindingly to, er, some of us) as City-West.

Ancient temples, sacred sites, and ancient wisdom by author Freddy Silva. Just Open: A Hidden Beach Hotel in Oaxaca: Remodelista. Older. Other Sites: Costa Rica as a Model Sustainable Living and Permaculture Design in Action. In February 2015, I took a 12-day trip to Costa Rica (my first real vacation!) Part of the reason I decided on Costa Rica was that this culture is well-known for emphasizing sustainability in a way that is well beyond lip service, and I wanted to experience it for myself and see what I could learn while I was there.

I want to touch on the many things I observed and learned on this journey with regards to sustainable living and permaculture design. I traveled to four areas and drove across large portions of the countryside: the Monteverde region (high in the cloud forests), the urban and suburban San Jose region; the volcanic La Fortuna region, and the costal Manuel Antonio region.
