They Wash the Trees Here................
We stood in fascination watching a man washing the trees. They must look their very best for when prospective buyers come to look at this vast building project.
Men deliver ice, strange as we assumed they would have ice making facilities on site.
Work continues day and night...........getting a little worn by all the clonking.
Our taxi arrived – Uber, which upsets all taxi ranks worldwide – so much cheaper. Three pounds to take us about half an hour to a huge mall. Our microwave packed up, the hoover is on the blink – we found both plus a new toilet brush holder and robe hook for me as mine keeps falling down. Cost for the lot – less than a hundred and fifty pounds. Next was to replace the sheet that Bear threw away in Thursday Island and a few bits in the supermarket. Replace the Easyo maker as ours leaks – free with five packs of yoghurt mix and chicken with rice in the food mall for three quid for both of us....... A very successful outing, back to the fancy facade, through with our trolley full of shopping, unpack and time for a swim and shower. What a life we lead.........
ALL IN ALL A SUCCESSFUL SHOPPING EXPEDITION
AN IMPRESSIVE MALL
