When I worked in a Vietnameserefugee camp in the Philippines, almost all the women seemed pregnant. Bordom plus lots of free time equals babies.
Yes, Colin, this seems to be a vicious circle.Once asking Mozambiquean what they liked best in Europe, the answer was: You have less children. We have so many, and hardly can feed them all.Even more impressed I was, though, on their reply to the question what they found most negative:Your homes for old people. We would never send our parents and grandparents away, but care for them. After all, when you were a child they did not send you away, did they?And now for something completely different, Colin: What's about the statue for "the poet of poets"? :)
