Molten lava flows into the sea at the end of the road to Kalani, and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is a half-day adventure away. Kalani Honua means "harmony of heaven and earth" in Hawaiian. This is a powerful place of bare rocks, starry nights, and big surf on black-sand beaches. A tropical sensorium softens the hard edges: scarlet hibiscus, fragrant plumeria, misty rains, sweet pineapples. Hawaii is synonymous with paradise, and travel to such a destination is easily equated with privilege.

This chapter explores privileged travel to a privileged place. The focus is neither on guests nor staff at Kalani, but on people who are in between those categories. "Resident volunteers" pay a maximum of $500 a month and work thirty hours a week for at least a three-month period at Kalani.
