Those pics remind me of my vacation time on the big island in the 90's, and how some of the most beautiful country real estate is some of the cheapest in the USA... as you head south after the town of Kona and continue towards Volcano National Park, you start passing thru some of the most gorgeous rolling hills with palm groves and houses on little cliffs with walks down to virgin waters. And you feel, when looking at the disposition of the residents, a disconnect between the state of the houses and the residents, and what you believe should be the high value of the real estate, based on the high value of the same kind of property a few minutes behind you in the Kona region... it's all off of that same main road where you saw that footage of the lava advancing.
..that real estate is filled with rickety little old houses that look like the back hills in impoverished Louisiana or something.. rusted out old cars with no wheels sitting up on cinderblocks in the front yards. Rusty old Winnebagos and trailer homes right in the side yard with hillbilly types hanging out smoking doobs. All this gorgeous real estate is essentially worth pennies because of the fact of the volcano just a bit up the road, and the poisonous fumes always being pulled by the trade winds across these pieces of property. Physically gorgeous real estate just as nice if not nicer that that just a couple miles back, but because of the unhealthy fumes . . . you can buy a piece of it for nothing.
And now with the volcano blowing I'm sure it's as low as it's ever been.
