Intriguing and how little has really changed. Still the priority on getting money from the land rather than making it a home for communities. Perhaps that will change as the temperature rises. Literal and figurative.Many thanks for sharing
Ha, Chris, what a lovely surprise. Glad you enjoyed.Two Sundays ago I started what might become a little series. So, if you like to have look.I like your thought, but I fear rising temperatures will not cause rising intelligence.Perhaps I had not added this sententence, had I not only watched "Hotel Terminus" once again, after many many years. My good thoughts are with you and the yours.
I used to holiday there in the 1960s. It is all a bit more gentrified now with decent cafes and restaurants, bars and hotels, and all open on Sundays too which would never have been acceptable then. The land is pretty much the same though, fortunately.
Tourists able to compare the "good old times" to "modern times" do sometimes complain, as if being annoyed that the standard of living for most people has improved.I do still remember an old man on the bog cutting turf saying: "Yes, it's a wonderful country, but it's hard to make a living."
Much better now (like most things, actually, when we step back from everyday nonsenses to be cooly rational).
