Pedantic Panda : “One of the earliest examples of urban planning, carried out by Ildefons Cerdà. “a strict grid pattern of equally sized blocks. Long, wide streets cut across the blocks in order to facilitate transport and navigation. Additionally, each of the blocks was made into an octagon, with chamfered corners giving the impression that they were ‘cut off’. According to Cerdà, this detail would provide greater air circulation in the streets, higher visibility around corners and would make it possible for trams to easily turn the corners of the blocks. The blocks were also all oriented in a NW-SE direction so as to ensure that each household received enough natural light each day.””

Multa Nocte : “This, to me, is one of the most beautiful and magnificent places in the world!”

LokisLilButterknife : “Petra looks absolutely amazing. I have heard tour guides and people who have visited highly recommend getting their early in the day so you have some time to enjoy the stunning views before some of the larger tour groups come.”

Hugh Cookson : “Most of the villages are now ghosts of what they were because of wealthy Londoners buying up holiday homes that they only use for a few weeks a year. The cycle is this ; (L = londoner / incomer). L buys house, removes a house for local to occupy, stays for 3 weeks a year, as a consequence, the local shop, pub, dentist and doctor lose trade, hence income. L number 2 and 3 buy houses on the recommendation of L (1), the Dr, Shop, Pub etc lose more trade. This goes on for a few more years with more L’s moving in and now complaining that they don’t have a shop, pub, Dr, etc and complaining even more that they can’t find a cleaner who’s willing to work for slave wages. Personally, I hope they all lose vast amounts of money and f**k off back to London and leave us peasants to rebuild and resist them ever being allowed to buy another rural property again. Failing that, anyone up for rounding them all up over the Christmas weekend and driving them at pitchfork point into the river Tamar ?!!!”

Hugh Cookson : “What a god awful way to live. Apart from the climate and the people, the idea of living in a soulless tower block of flats, regardless of it’s proximity to the sea or anywhere else beautiful, gives me the heebeejeebies. In contrast, my wife has just pointed out that at least it’s better than living on the street !!!”
