Life on Tristan da Cunha

Tristan da Cunha is the most remote inhabited island in the world. We’ve posted about the island before. Now you can take a little tour of island life with Stewart McPherson. Resident Harold Green says it’s quiet and peaceful, except for that volcanic eruption in 1961 that forced a two-year evacuation. Fifty-five years later, it’s still a traumatic memory for the islanders.

With less than 300 permanent residents, it’s no wonder they consider each other brothers and sisters. It’s likely they are all at least cousins. They have what they need, for now. There’s a bus, which is something my town of 8,000 doesn’t have. Then again, we have cars. -via Laughing Squid
