Ok, so. Dealing with this whole SHE thing. If we want sustainable hospitality we need to start changing the way we eat. No meat is a good start. But we also need to start buying only locally grown organic foods.

Foods like sugar, coffe, and the like that cannot be bought locally should all be fair trade, in suport of small organic farmers in poor countries.

a place to stay and breath...?

Hey there lovely casa crew...

I just got back from a little tweedledee around france for a month or two, and am back in holland! Am feeling like a little lost traveller actually... need some space and time with crew i know and love and a little corner for myself. Anyway, im planning on staying in amsterdam till christmas, and then a couple of weeks after... and am wondering if there is space in the casa you need to fill?? Mandy needs some time out, so im checking my options! Plus i would love to put the final touches on my filming with you guys around!
