ah, the old myths, legends, and lies problem. ah well, there was already a debate about that.
i want to live in a yurt, actually. might seem strange, but it is right up my alley.
ryan and i also discuss spending one to two years of our children's early lives in a foriegn country like thailand or india. mostly because i want to study more traditional thai medicine and more ayurvedic medicine and would need to live in these places for at least a year to apprentice (i can get most of the educational stuff here). It looks like i'll be doing that when my kids are young.
then we can live in all sorts of traditional dwellings and situations, in cultures that have large vegetarian populations, and where american things aren't 'normal.'
