Berneray Industrial Zone

It's busy this morning in the Backhill settlement on Berneray. Our single-track road is filled with all manner of work vehicles; lorries, vans, trailers, BT engineers, and not one but two JCBs:

At one point, I counted 14 - fourteen! - vehicles either in motion, or waiting to move. At the same time. That's easily a record in the nearly four years have been living here. Not used to this level of traffic intensity and volume; maybe they've decided to build the 2012 Olympic stadium here instead?

  3. Come to Madrid. Here noise is our culture. 120dB in my street is not enough, so ambulances use sirens at night :] Not to mention that to bump gently in someone's car is a kind of greeting. How do you like it?! Enjoy your life on your island. Dejo un poco tortilla y jamon serrano para ti. Hasta luego, amigo!

  5. I wonder what they were doing! Perhaps something major, like erecting a new street lamp???
