Very Simple Very Easy Very Good, (VSVEVG) is about the shared life of artist and writer, Abby Smith and camposino and mezcalero, Felipe Pita Cruz in rural Mexico. This blog is about what it's like to live in the campo (country living en espanol), and our milagros and mishaps on the road to self sustainability.
