Ghost Town, population: 1

Noticed this story the other day in The New Zealand Herald. The town of Sostila has become a ghost town after being abandoned in the 1960s yet one man has decided on living there. Fausto Mottalini, 65, decided to move back to the town after retiring as a doctor. He lives a mostly isolated and self-sustaining lifestyle in the lower Alpine village, making trips to a neighboring town every so often. Personally, this is the kind of place I would love to retire to one day: an isolated Alpine cabin with a fireplace and an Internet connection.
