Wires and spider webs

Wires in Bangkok

Since I arrived in Thailand, I was really impressed by the electrical and communication network. In every city or town, wires run in all directions, loosely attached to electric posts, in a rather chaotic fashion. It has become usual for me to see electric wires entertwined with tree branches, often at the reach of one's hand. People don't seem to bother about this, even when the rain is heavy! In Ton Sai, one of these wires hanging between the jungle and the village had become the preferred highway for a colony of ants to go get some food.

According to Ong's father, what explains this phenomenon is the population: the more people live in an area, the more wires you need to add. I still wonder why these guys can't plainly use a single, large diameter wire instead. It's probably less expensive to use several small ones I guess. They also adapt better to increases in population.

Oh and, there's a spider who watches my back while I solder. One of her cousins inhabits my room. I'm under heavy surveillance...
