  1. I had this view from the hight of the „IT-center“ which offers mostly clothing. At the ugly and stinking „boulevard“ one can find 3 malls in a distance ~500m from each other, all with nearly the same assortment. Between them garage-shops all with the same architectural structure – their ass to the nice bay. Nothing is grown like an old city, but had been badly planned and fast constructed in low quality on new soil over the sea-ground. Strolling along, one could not say if this is an Asian city with a special style. During heavy rain, the street becomes flooded because the mostly open canals with their smelling grey water are obstructed by garbage.

  2. Sounds horrible Tom. I feel sorry for people who must live in those conditions. We’re lucky to live in woodland with no neighbours, except the wildlife. And no MacDonald’s for miles.

  3. I’m lucky too, to live in my own jungle (not too bad that in the meantime they offer pizza at the market, and the 3 new super-markets are more comfortable). But for the locals, nature is unpleasant, even dangerous. They don’t see the Pacific-horizon any more because it’s so usual. They like to live in modern houses close together, equipped with the newest cellphones – and motorbikes! That’s why they destroy the only quality, this place offers: nature.

  4. In England it’s become a consumer society. You must have a car that will impress, foreign holidays, the latest mobile phone, etc etc. Debt is spiralling and so many live on credit. They don’t seem to realise they have a choice, that they could live much more simply, and maybe even enjoy it. So glad we left and became time-millionaires.
