Monday 11th August - The Clean Clean Streets of Lima
It struck me today, how unbelievably clean the streets of Lima are. It is a capital city, so you might expect litter, or dirty patches, or even stray leaves blowing around your feet, or... something. But there is nothing. The trees and decorative gardens/grassy patches are impeccably kept, and resemble some kind of show-garden. The trees either have been bred to be some kind of super-trees that don't drop foliage, or there is a tiny elf residing in the trunks that runs out if one leaf or bloom even thinks of being out of place. Everything is white, glossy, and swept within an inch of its life. A model for London to adopt perhaps?
