Uli Bajo is a deserted village in Navarre in Spain (so Ba-ho and not banjo without the n). It had a long history as a small village. It is now deserted. You can read about it, in Spanish, here and see photos. Cute?
Why did I choose Uli Bajo as the name of the website? Partly I just loved the name! But mainly because it demonstrates the passage of time. A lively community, small yes but thriving and now it has gone. I feel the same way about the lost villages of England. An amazing number. Dunwich, now lost under the North Sea was once a major port. Towns and villages come and go; some are lucky and have a continuous history of thousands or at last hundreds of years. But they may decline.
The lost and deserted villages of the past remind us that change has always happened; that adapation to change is essential and change again more likely than not. Change is not happening fast enough; it will happen faster in the future.
So enjoy the News from Uli Bajo; please comment or pass on the link or the story.
