This is a sad Weirdness Wednesday choice – Paradise lost: Italian hermit forced to leave island he guarded for 32 years https://globalnews.ca/news/7812992/italy-island-hermit-evicted-budelli/. Longer article, but here’s a brief synopsis. I saw it a few days ago, but didn’t realize he was being forced to leave.

The man known as Italy‘s Robinson Crusoe has agreed to grudgingly leave the island he’s protected for the last three decades, ending a years-long fight to force him out of his hermit’s paradise.

Mauro Morandi, 81, bid farewell to his beloved Isle of Budelli in a Facebook post on Sunday, some 32 years after he dedicated his life to caring for the spot as its only resident. He worked as the island’s official caretaker until it changed owners in 2016, and he’s spent the last several years continuing his unofficial duties while defying efforts to push him out.

That is, until now.

Thought this was an unusual case where real life shows truth is truth is stranger than fiction and a great Weirdness Wednesday post.
