I worked at the gold mıne near La Rınconada. It was very difficult to breathe, move, eat because of high altitude for me as locals played soccer.

Went to Coober Pedy,the locals at the pub were not that cordial, probably protective of their opal mines(holes in the ground)

Thanks for the offer but no thanks, I wouldn't like to live in any of them. I have been to Coober Pedy and it is hot in winter, and very hot in summer, but sleeping underground is fun for a holiday but not permanently.

I think I might like living in Tristan da Cunha. The rest are a big NO for me!

Incredible in this day & age to see people still living in these conditions in such remote places. Not for me thank you, I like home comforts.

Shishmaref, Alaska could have been mentioned here. It is a seaside village which is inhabited by Inupiats. There have been plans made to move the entire village but it has not happened yet.
