Brazilian Man Has Been Living In A Sandcastle For 22 Years

posted by Scottro - 

A 44 year old Brazilian man dubbed King Marcio, has been living in a sandcastle on the beach for over two decades. He recently celebrated 22 years 

The Daily Mirror reports:

Unlike other monarchs, ‘King Marcio’ is personally responsible for conducting repairs to his palace, whether it’s the dungeons or a door.

He also has to constantly water his home to keep it from collapsing, Lavoixdunord.fr reports.

Despite this inconvenience, Matolias says he would not have it any other way.

He said: “I grew up in the Bay of Guanabara, I always lived on the beach. People pay exorbitant rents to live in front of the sea, I do not have bills and here I have a good life.”

Marcio says it's dificult to sleep in the castle because the sand holds the sun's heat, so he'll sometimes stay at a friend's place. But he prefers to stay at the castle, even if it means sleeping outside on the beach...

Could you live like King Marcio? This man has lived in a sandcastle for 22 years and has a lesson for us all on materialism. #rio #sandcastle #brazil #house #minimalism #bbcnews
