Not everyone builds a sandcastle and says to him or herself, “I’d like to live in one of these for most of my life.”
But not everyone is Marcio Mizael Matolias.
The 44-year-old Brazilian gave up his apartment so he could live in a 32 square foot sandcastle on a beach in Brazil. He has to cook his food outside and use a firehouse across the street for a bathroom and shower, but that doesn’t bother Motalias. Though he said he occasionally feels lonely, he told NowThis:
I’m happy. As everyone says and as you can also read in some books, happiness is a spiritual state.
Marcio doesn’t worry about his house getting destroyed, either, as he can just build another one.
Would you consider living in a sandcastle?
