An all-vegan village sounds miserable. I'd refuse to live there.

I live in Israel right now and I actually went to Amirin for a week long vacation. It's a lovely place on the montains in the northern part of Israel, overlooking the Kineret. The place itself was very pleasant - quiet and very friendly. I was there for a special raw food retreat, so the food I ate was all raw, but if someone goes for a vacation and eats in the regular dining room, the food is vegan.

The people there aren't miserable, although I agree with you that it's not for everyone. I couldn't stand it more than a few weeks, I think, simply because I like the noise and business of a larger city.

From today's news:

Indian City Becomes First Vegetarian City in the World
Worldcrunch (http://www.worldcrunch.com/culture-society/in-india-the-world-039-s-first-vegetarian-city/india-palitana-food-meat-fish-gujarat/c3s17132/#.VDL6_fldXm7) reports a historic change in Palitana, an Indian city, which has become the first all-vegetarian city in the world.

Behind this revolutionary change are the Jain monks who went on a hunger strike to pressure the state of Gujarat to outlaw animal slaughter in their city. The hunger strike was successful and the Gujarat government imposed a ban on animal slaughter and outlawed the sale of meat and eggs.

About 5 million people in India practice Jainism and agree with the ban.

Virat Sagar Maharaj, a Jain monk, says, "Everyone in this world - whether animal or human being or a very small creature - has all been given the right to live by God."

As individuals, the best thing you can do to protect animals is to adopt a kind vegan lifestyle. For more information and tips for transitioning to a vegan diet, check out ChooseVeg.com (http://www.chooseveg.com/).

Melbourne isn't 100% vegan per se but Fiztroy has quite a few vegan stores and restaurants.

I, for one, would love to live in an all-vegan or even only all-vegetarian city.

And yes, Fitzroy is awesome :-)
I think I would go to Vegie Bar every day if I was living there....
