    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:
    http://www.mfablog.org/indian-city-b...egetarian-city

    Indian City Becomes First Vegetarian City in the World
    Worldcrunch 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.
    I will not eat anything that walks, swims, flies, runs, skips, hops or crawls.

    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....
