These People Aren't Afraid to Get Their Hands Dirty
En-route to the northern hills of Okinawa, we stopped and visited this place.
It will take some more research to get all the details.
But, I had fun just, watching and shooting photos.
The engineer, in me, loves this sort of stuff.
Wonder if I could snitch some blueprints.
They take, regular Okinawa red clay and sift it.
Then, mix it with cement and water.
Fill up buckets with the stuff and get these gal volunteers to slap it on the building.
They're constructing some sort of Ecology House.
It looks like a huge beehive.
We will have to go back up there and see the finished product.
Don't you think that would be a neat place to live?
