There is a 20 minute British Documentary with the above title that is really worth seeing. Unfortunately, I can’t seem to embed it here, but if you click on this link immediately below, then click on arrow at the bottom of the film, or click on Play Film on top, it will play for you. It is a great little film that takes us out of our own Big Sur over tourism problems and introduces you to a few of the others. It is time to start managing, and several of us are working on that. I’ll keep you posted.
