Why Tahoe?

Dear Reader,

 

In 2001 my then-fiancé and I moved to Tahoe. We figured we would invest a couple of years in Tahoe as we had in any of the other places where we had worked on environmental and civic causes in the 1990s. Between the two of us we had lived in Boston, Salem, Los Angeles, Berkeley, Pleasanton, Paris, Lyon, and Lake Baikal. We consider ourselves citizens of the world. Arriving in Tahoe we thought, “Why would we stop in Tahoe any longer than anywhere else we’ve been?” Now it is 2011, and while we have continued to travel and study in other places during the past decade, Tahoe has been our steady home and center of gravity. Why Tahoe? With the world at our fingertips what made us set up shop here?
