In 2013, José Mujica is the president of Uruguay. A man who’s lifestyle differs radically from other heads of state. President Mujica has rejected the use of the presidential palace and chosen to stay living in his house, a small farm on the outskirts of Montevideo. His home is located in a remote area with roads of dirt and under the custody of only two policemen. Mujica says to be coherent with his way of thinking, he declares that he takes from the world only what he needs. For this reason, he lives away from any opulence, drives his own car, does not employ any house cleaning or assistance, works mainly from his home and donates 90% of his salary to different charities. José Mujica seems to be a character born from a fantasy novel, but the president is very real.
