When you live in a place where materials are expensive and hard to come by, recycling becomes important. Building and houses are often moved from one location to another. In fact, just a few days ago I saw an ad for a house for sale for a really decent price, but it turned out that the price was so good because you had to move it off of the lot so you were only buying the house and not the land with it.
There arent very many other things to do so following a moving building down the road may be the most interesting thing that happens in awhile. There was a long line of kids hanging around the building watching its slow progression through the busiest part of town during the busiest part of the day. There were cars cutting through the grocery store parking lot to get around it. Interesting thing to see and a small reminder of what an interesting place this is to live.
