Ever Heard of Pitcairn Island?
Submitted by Amber on 2007-01-12 04:04:50 (via www.cristytrembly.com)
Only 2 square miles and 48 people. Imagine a place with no bills, mortgage payments, never a need to dress up, no schedule, no boss - it's incredible!! There's no crime, no gangs, no drugs, no poor people, everyone takes care of everyone… Wow! Wow! Wow! Sounds like paradise to me. And when I think of the bustling, stinky city I live in…

Wow, that was interesting! Imagining a little community without cars, TV-sets, phones, with a very few ways of transport communication with the "Big world", people shooting breadfruit from the trees, and in the same time living in a normal civilised world, with no criminality, no mariage between members of the same family and no cannibalism. This is a very touchy and emotional article, I enjoyed realing it a lot.

I'm glad you enjoyed the article; Pitcairn is getting more modern now, but not so much it is taking away the culture. They always had TVs and VCRs, but now have some email contact, too. No place is perfect, but I treasure my memories and my Pitcairn Island friends and hope to return one day (there is talk of some type of air service in the future, I hope it can happen one day.)

Take care,
Cristy
