"I´m also doing a bit of research for my huge (my only,
really) project for this term, which has to do with the
ecological sustainability, the quality of life, and the
future applicability of a village high in the Talamancas on
the Pacific side that is called Durika.
"Durika is made up of 11 families that left San jose [i
messed up . . . san jose, NOT san juan] (for OBVIOUS
reasons) in order to found a completely self-sufficient and
sustainable community in the hills. They farm organically,
they purchase reserve land, they build their own houses.

possible applicability to others who might have
similar interests. Check out www.durika.com for all

"What I´d love from you is any email info, websites,
journal articles, books, or any other reference
material or literature. WE´d greatly appreciate any or all
info that you could send us on sustainability within
small communities, especially those that may have
translocated from an urban setting.
"With a little luck, we´re going to try to pioneer a
partnership with ACM [associated colleges of the midwest].
The thing is, they are all about spreading the word, and
we´re all about getting some cheap lodging. We figure that
if we could propose a long term research commitment and
visit schedule for them, maybe they´d cut the lodging price
in half. It´s all about the long term and the big
thanks again for any info that i can pass along . . . and
browse thru myself.
