July 7, 2008: Living On The Edge

In the "Bigger Europe" IOtD the other day, I mentioned that Europe was worrying about overcrowding, in the early '30s. Now I see what they were worrying about.

Ronda, Spain.



Bonifacio, Corsica.



Castellfollit de la Roca, Spain.


On the up side, I guess it's easy to get rid of trash and garbage.



SPUCK  Monday Jul 7 05:28 AM

Yeah.. I'm looking at that lower right inset on the first pic and wondering shurrrrrr they ran a sewer line up from that place.

Or kids, or pets, or spouses, or roofers.

xoxoxoBruce  Monday Jul 7 07:47 AM

How big is that town/city, manu?

I've also been to Bonifacio. It is a beautiful midievil town, the edge of which is perched so precariously on the edge of those cliffs. I arrived there by boat, and it's very dramatic when seen from below...!

Manu, what takes you to Corsica? I have French family with property there and many Corsican friends. I have been going since the 70's. Yourself?


classicman  Monday Jul 7 10:59 AM

ok - say you live toward the end and have a refrigerator and some new furniture coming - how's it get delivered?

BrianR  Monday Jul 7 12:42 PM

I have also been to Spain. Some city beginning with a 'B' but not Bonifacio...B B bbb ummmm...... on Yeah! Benidorm! With the crocodile and the rain!

Never mind me....



tombstone  Monday Jul 7 01:20 PM

...Send the visitors' obnoxious kids out to play in the back yard....



Gravdigr  Monday Jul 7 04:59 PM

Let's see...Houses of dubious structural integrity...constructed on the precipice of certain death...

DONOTWANT!!!!!!

I would never sleep. Never.



zippyt  Monday Jul 7 05:01 PM

Gives a whole new meening to Peeing off the Back Porch !!!



Gravdigr  Monday Jul 7 05:05 PM

Oh. My. God. In the pic from Castellfollit de la Roca, Spain, just above the middle of the pic, on the side of the cliff...Is that a TV antenna? Or a child catcher? Or a gangplank?



glatt  Monday Jul 7 05:22 PM

At least these houses are built on solid rock, even if it is above a cliff. What about all the hillside houses in California right in the heart of landslide/earthquake country?

Solid rock? Look at that first Bonifacio picture.


glatt  Monday Jul 7 05:30 PM

Sure, the part that wasn't solid fell down. But what's left is solid.



HungLikeJesus  Monday Jul 7 05:34 PM

I think people who lived in the second row wanted to live in the first row. Now they do.

... and eventually people who lived on the third row back then will have that privilege.

Look at the basalt columns ready to break off in the Spanish town:
