On forrest, men and housing

Up were I live most houses seem to be illegal. New ones are being built, but others have been left ruins for a long time. The forrest is starting to take over.
ruins

The post is distributed, the busses go here and we even got new, modern looking bus stops the other day. I guess the court decisions are seen as dated. As far as I can understand the idea is that the whole area should be forrested, but in reality houses are being built everywhere. Or at least in a lot of places. Some places, obviously are left like these like some kind of bizarre preservation park where the houses just are left as a challange to the growing forrest.

Did I tell you there are a few things about this city I don’t understand?

    The idea is simple…. ;

    Those areas are forbidden for construction but people still build houses because generally if you can stand your ground long enough, someday someone eventually will give you a real estate piece of paper making it all legal..

    It happens….. unfortunately…
