You may be thinking about being isolated from civilization and living on an island. Here you will have another option: being very social at the same time. Santa Cruz del Islote in Colombia may only be about the size of two soccer fields, but the island has four main streets and 10 neighbourhoods. More than a thousand people live on the island in around 155 houses. With so many people packed into such a small space, it’s the most densely populated island in the world. The inhabitants have to use neighbouring islands as cemeteries and they work elsewhere, primarily at the Mucura Island Hotels. There is one school with one teacher and a restaurant that functions as a port. Free 24-hour Internet service was established for the island, allowing the students access to distance education during the Coronavirus pandemic. Previously, service had been expensive and of poor quality, making it difficult to do educational activities from home. Santa Cruz del Islote is also poor: there is no clean drinking water or sewerage, and there are problems with rubbish and pollution. Despite their needs, people say they do not feel poor and can get along as they do not have big expenses.

Would you like to live on Santa Cruz del Isolate Island? Why/why not?

Working until you die is better than being idle just because you are old.

“Murat: Grandma, you shouldn’t work so hard. You’re not young anymore, you know.
Grandmother: Thanks for your concern, dear, but I plan to keep working. It’s better to wear out than to rust out”

Are you a hardworking or lazy person? When do you usually feel hardworking or lazy?
