Early morning bus ride to a provincial capital. Grab my sandwich and coffee, as well as three plastic bags with other food. Get on the bus and sit comfortably in a soft chair. Take out my brand new mobile phone and show off a little bit. Just so that those neighbours know that I'm no fool and my husband earns good money.

 

What could be better?

Heating

I also learned the importance of central heating, or, rather, the absence of it.

No heating means less expenditure per family, less infrastructure, simpler and faster construction projects, et cetera, et cetera.

That means more money can be spent on useful things like education  or a few pints of Singha beer.
