Tidbit Tuesday: Swine Moat

Ok, not technically a moat but, "swine run-off ditch beside the road" just doesn't have the same ring.  It also suffers the disadvantage merely being a reference to, rather than a quote of, a very funny movie.

Nearly every street is lined with such moats.  The streets that don't have these amenities are a muddy mess when it rains (I know, because I have spent two unpleasant mornings trying desperately not to get a mud shower from passing cars on my way to work).  There are always bridges, some pretty, some plain, to cross.  This was a particularly pretty bridge that I found one morning in the older part of the city.  There are also some very nice bridges crossing the really large moat (think four times wider and three times deeper than this one) on Abai.


  1. Dreyfus: The beggar was the lookout man for the gang.
    Clouseau: That is impossible. How can a blind man be a lookout?
    Dreyfus: [Insinuating Clouseau] How can an idiot be a police officer?
    Clouseau: Well, all he has to do is enlist...
    Dreyfus: Shut up!

    lol - good times... ;0D
