    ... all performing in synch there wasn't a peron to be seen (unless you count the police/soldiers and ranks of lady cleaners), The Constitution Monument had an exhibiton hall under it - but it was closed.

    ... receive a generous allowance of free water, gas. & electricity which means only the largest families have to pay utility bills. And even then, it is unlikely to be much.
