did anyone see this guy's show on tv this past fall? he is a smart, talkative and intersting hippie guy. really knows the people and native foods of the area. it is a very cool idea, this place, but they are seriously 'off the grid'. completely self sustaining, like an educational and agricultural commune. very remote and only accessable by boat. FYI.
