My contribution for this week’s

Housing – How the other half lived

After posting the refugee camp, I thought I would

go in the opposite direction.

The front yard of the Shonbrunn Palace…

 and the back balcony.

We were told that this palace was

the Summer Palace and known as The Cottage

because it only had 1,400 rooms.

The Winter Palace consisted of 3,000 rooms,

so I guess it was a cottage, comparatively speaking.

A vast difference to the accommodation in the refugee camp.

My focus is on housing this week.

This morning the demolition of the Calais refugee camp made

a two second visual grab on our electronic media.

In the comfort of our air-conditioned coach

we passed this camp twice in September.

Tucked behind a high barbed wire fence, we were told,

were 30,000 refugees while the internet claims a high of 10,000.

Whatever the real number these homes/housing

are now being destroyed so the occupants can/will move on.
