Phuket's Velvet Underground
Seeing the forest from the tree or perhaps from that jungle like mayhem of power pole is increasingly difficult.
With the exception of the oceanfront strip in Karon Beach and the new initiative in Phuket Town (City if you prefer), the recent rains have visually now created what could be termed - the great sway.
Leaning monsters with cables running every which way but loose.
Bangkok's Metropolitan Authority has been working out improvement in the capital for year, but continues to face roadblocks like underground piping, cement foundations and drainage systems run amok.
Estimates place the average cost of going under versus over at a multiple of ten, so yes the question is do the government authorities have time to focus on the future when there are so many immediate demands.
Nothing looks to change substantially under the present political standoff over paying off election promises versus an ailing countrywide infrastructure crisis.
Perhaps painting all those poles green might provide some aesthetic relief.
