Sunday 30th November

A more leisurely day in the rain and the cold.


Max said he would like to come back to make a drum.


Greg and Clare were reminded of daily life in Mongolia and shared their knowledge of how cooking and water systems are made there. Greg sent us some pictures.


Making tea in Mongolia.

The question of the ideal shelter keeps cropping up. Greg suggested we watch the film Mujaan, about yurt building in Mongolia – could it be adapted to this water-logged environment?


See more on Greg’s blog:


Ok its freezing – we need to make a bonfire. The obvious spot is in the middle of the millstones – a natural gathering place. Nick ectort with all his expertise and experience, gets it going. We’d been waiting for the right moment. Making it directly on the land, allows the ashes to fertilise the soil.


nothing better than fire baked potatoes…



We watch the flames. Lots of questions as we explore the wider issues in good company.



And attempt to get back to basics.
