I was walking up our street the other day and noticed the electricity/telephone wires strung off the front of the quite elegant buildings, and wondered why we can't have underground services like the people who live up by the chateau do.
Mind you, we do have some way to go before we can rival the usual scene in Seoul!
*This goes with that.
Dad Update: Dad is home. He has been in hospital for 18 days, so no doubt he will enjoy the novelty of sitting out on the verandah over the next couple of days.
