Creación de un estilo de vida sostenible en Patagonia パタゴニアでサステイナブルな暮らし作り
The earth we've dug out to create the pit style greenhouse has been placed into earthbags and used to create a path to walk on and a the new pond to feed the plants. In the process we have created a new comfort zone, where we will make a bench, plant roses and have a nice picnic view zone.
This large mound of earth in the corner contains good soil that drains well and that we hope is suitable for cantaloupes and watermelons, a crop, up until now, not grown…Continue

We have a hectare of pasture and it grows like wildfire. We've contemplated getting a sheep, or a goat but have planted lots of trees and they'll disappear along with the grass. We bought a scythe, but can't seem to find the time to use it. Then our friend Arilo, who supplies us with the wood…
A beautiful rainbow, close and perfect creates a dome of light over our land as a welcome to Patagonia symbol for our good friends Koichi and Ai Nakatani and children Ishin and Tanka. We are now living in our house and Koichi and family have moved into our La Junta…Continue
We're only 80 kms from the ocean and yet we hardly ever see any seafood! La Junta is a cowboy town and everyone eats beef and sheep - except us. There was a lady who sold fish from a small hut for a couple of months but she's dissapeared to more fishy climes, so it came as a small miracle that one day Konomi went to the local store and lo and behold a huge bag of King Crab Claws fresh from the nearby pacific. Just US$10 for the lot and a nice change for us and Cliff, who's…Continue

It`s our wedding anniversary today. Five years ago we got married on the beautiful island of Okinawa just after I finished walking around the island planting trees for the 230,000 people killed in 1945 in the last major battle of WW2. And now we*re in Patagonia... Life is very…Continue
Konomi besides Dubes Horse
We had to spend an extra day in Valle Quinto due to torrential rians that raised the surrounding rivers overnight. It was no hardship though as we had more time to enjoy Lucio's farm and hospitality.
Leaving the farm we hiked the two kilometers to the Rio Quinto along with Lucio's family and his uncle Dube Rosas and his wife who rode their…Continue

I took these photo's as we passed through Argentinian Patagonia on our way to build our home in La Junta, Chile.
They were a lovely site set with the Andes as a back drop and Konomi was very happy to see them.
So did our friends, the owners of Cabanas Rincon dels Sur,… Continue
