|Auroville visitor area|
Sunday, Boxing Day, we found the little museum and also drove out of town to Auroville,
an international community set up in the late 60's with a vision of creating a place for communal living that would encourage everyone's talents and the development of overall well-being, with no sense of individual ownership but much sharing and cooperation.

They have an impressive record for developing ecologically friendly and sustainable homes, schools, manufacturing, power and so on. We went to the visitor centre which apparently attracts hundreds of people everyday.
