    See, they use their roofs for outdoor living and as gardens.Why can’t these new homes we are building (at such ‘rapid pace’) incorporate this? For environmental benefits and general well-being.

      They’re lovely. Your washing dries in an hour! Also, it’s so nice to be able to have an aul nose at other houses. The one we stay in has an enclosed order across the way so you can see the nuns doing wotevs nuns do during the day*.

      *not much.

      Never understood that here myself. We have an entire extra level that we ignore, a little bit of imagination could really help with city living like that?

      Ultimately, it would be great if we could start to incorporate more greenery into city spaces, so many benefits to be had all round? However, we have been stuck with generally unimaginative leadership in this country for so long its hard to see how and when this could be implemented?

    Lovely city. Only been there a couple of times, but the first was memorable. Got off the bus from the airport in the centre just as a massive cloudburst opened up, and the streets became rivers. Half an hour of huddling in a cafe stuffed with people sheltering, and all very friendly. Decided to have a cup of coffee while I waited – too early for the G&T, I am afraid :(
