Strongly built, well, blow me down

Bomb shelter door.jpgI was just surprised at the fore-thought shown by the builders. The door looked sturdy, in fact bomb-shelter sturdy. After a certain amount of thought, they are shelters not to protect against the splinters of war, but more of the debris of a typhoon.

I know for a fact that Singapore, in all of it’s preparedness, also has storm shelters built into their subway system. Built for another reason, they come equipped with showers, beds and even airlocks.

Feed me!


Specialisation being what it is in the Yangji market place in Guangzhou, there are even shops that only sell pet food. As for the cats, they didn’t get fed.
