The company housing that we saw driving by would be condemned in the US. Old, not maintained, filthy.

    In general, the norm for housing that we have seen would ...

    ... t take her eyes off me! When my bus came I so wanted to get to a window and wave with a 'Seeya Physco'! But of course the bus was packed, so there was no chance of that. Bizarre!
