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.

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?

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?

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?

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

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