Thanks Claudia for passing on my email to Chanin. However I prefer he responds to queries using the transparent medium of the blog. This means all readers are informed for often I find others ask questions which are in my mind. One question I have which the community might be wondering about is the present ongoing replacement of the paving shown in the photo at the head of the blog with grey granite stone tiles. This is an exercise requiring the use of much energy i.e. generating CO2, which appears to involve a large use of funds which will do nothing to improve the amenity of the area let alone discourage motorized transport. Are the World Bank or GEF giving any financial support for this work?
