I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Welcome to the working week

I never cease to be amazed at the people -- men, mostly -- who can work on scaffolding high above the street without clinging to the wall and whimpering for mommy.

I took this picture from across the street, so it's not obvious how high up the men were --  on around the fourth floor, if I recall correctly -- and they're basically just standing on some boards laid across what doesn't look like terribly sturdy scaffolding. No railing, no safety harness, and they seem so nonchalant. My knees are wobbling just looking at the picture.
