18 June 2024 XLVII
Khamsin Molossia News

As noted before, the Republic of Molossia is a larger country than can be seen in our Home Territory located in Northern Nevada. Our nation also possesses two exclaves: Desert Homestead Province, located near Joshua Tree, California, and Farfalla Province, located outside the Northern California town of Alturas. Farfalla consists of 7,965 Square Royal Nortons (2 hectares / 4.9 acres) of uninhabited land surrounded by rolling forested hills. It is split by a small creek named Deer Run, which is partially fed by Lion Spring. Farfalla is covered in juniper and piņon trees, wild flowers and grasses. In the absence of humans, there is substantial wildlife in Farfalla, including deer, coyotes, cottontail rabbits and the occasional house cat.

It was to Farfalla that His Excellency, the President and the First Lady journeyed on 16 June 2024 XLVII, to visit our distant province. The First Family set up a temporary camp in Farfalla next to the flag pole in the center of the province. One of the purposes of the trip was to effect repairs to the trail camera, set up two years ago to monitor wildlife (and guard against intruders) passing through Farfalla. In addition, the Farfalla time capsule, buried in 2017 XL, was dug up, its contents examined and reburied with new items. As in previous visits, plans were made to establish a more permanent presence in Farfalla, perhaps starting with a trail from the parking area to the flagpole. Whether or not that happens remains to be seen. In the meantime, we will continue to enjoy our distant Farfalla Province from afar.
