From the Web site of John and Jane Grimsrud:
My wife of 39 years, Jane and I live in our ecologically friendly home that we designed and built ourselves here in Mérida, Yucatan, Mexico in 1991.
We sold all of our motorized vehicles five years ago and now silently get around by bicycle.
The couple's blog chronicles "bicycle and/or bus trips into the towns surrounding Merida, Yucatan, Mexico. Visit the towns of the Mayas, past and present."
A recent blog post describes (in words and photos) the virtues of the hammock:
The Yucatecan hammock is the most versatile, most easily stowed and comfortably sensible furniture item that is perfectly suited to tropical living and you can easily take them anywhere.
