Mind Your Head

Not uncommon in Budapest is the sight of scrawled signs warning of death and destruction coming from above.

I'm not talking about the preachers at Nyugati underpass prophesizing the coming of Jesus (Jesus is alive, Jesus loves you, sign up for God's special offer today or there's no saving you).

I'm refering to the enterprising mountaineering people that dangle from the tops of the buildings and abseil down, cleaning and scrubbing as they go.

I don't think I've seen the phenomenon in the UK where it's probably cheaper to spend thousands of pounds on fancy gizmo robot thingy that cleans them automatically, than pay the window washer blokes their wages.

No real comment on this one, more of an observation. I wonder if they sing when they're cleaning windows.

No. They sing In Me Little Snapshot Album. Sometimes, if they're feeling particularly merry, they'll sing Our Fanny's Gone all Yankee.
