Seriously.  Today is our day off, so were in town (a 2 mile walk).  This is just a short entry to let our world know we are alive and well.  We sleep in a tent, there is no electricity, no running water and we really do poop in a bucket attached to a toilet seat under a tree.  We work on a farm in the morning and evening (avoiding the heat of the day) and construction of a natural construction house during the day - making by hand the mud plaster.  Its an amazing site; well have photos later.  At the end of the day we bathe in a ditch!  Its cold, but it feels good.  More later, we need to get back for the best part of each day - siesta!!

Ciao!  -Jeff

(fyi, the town name is pronounced two-new-shawn)

sounds like a nice place to visit, but not sure i would care to "live there", even for 3 wks.

You're pooping in a bucket, sleeping in a tent, and bathing in a ditch... and to think last week you wouldn't stay in a hotel because it had a little mold in it.

Sweet! I'm sure there's a disgusting Dr. Suess rhyme in here some where...Can you sleep in a tent on a hill? Could we poop in a bucket and make it fill....

Have fun you little granola kids...

I've been behind on your blog because of HP kicking back - and I have to admit, the title of this entry drew me right right in. Love the fact that you guys did the farm thing and helped in the building of something that will be there after you are gone.
