"This ole house is gettin' shaky

This ole house is gettin' old

This ole house lets in the rain

This ole house lets in the cold

On my knees I'm gettin' chilly

But I feel no fear nor pain

'Cause I see an angel peekin'

Through the broken windowpane "




In a country with such deep and rich culture, some towns had seen their glory day centuries back. Sometime it is an industry that became out dated or an emperor that shifted his regional capitol to another location.

Waking through these streets I could feel the graceful houses tell the story of those days gone by. Yet the life is abundant. These are by no means ghost towns. Quite the opposite, they bustle with life and actually the contrast gives the street life an added value.

    I can imagine some important Victorian British soldier once having stood out on that porch. Barking orders and enjoying tea. Or a local Caliph. Perhaps the regional manager for AT&T? :-)
