When you live in a place for a long time you become used the the way infrastructure and public institutions work. When you travel to other lands and cultures, things can become obvious of what works and what doesn’t. Here is one observation I had in Bangkok.
Apparently there are no rules for public utilities such as electrical and communication lines. If you need one, you get a crew and string one up. Just in the few days we were in Bangkok, we saw crews stringing lines by hand – no trucks or equipment required. Check out some of this action.
