1000 Americans: Roberta from Juncalito

August 16, 2009 by ,  
Filed under 1000 Americans

Roberta, Juncalito

Off the grid

Roberta lives in a small community together with other US citizens as well as locals.

There is no power or fixed telephone, they are ‘off the grid’. Power is generated by solar panel (and generator if really needed, but usually that is off) and much communication is done through radios.

She is a gifted painter and has not only made beautiful portraits of the people and places around her, but also painted her own house, above.
