The construction of the new metro was quite hazardous. At one point, they pierced the bottom of an underground stream and gravel pit, which drained out, and a big hole appeared in the street above it. Apparently after that they were a bit nervous when digging the tunnel in the piles of the old bridge.
I love the way the city is layered here. When I lived here I never noticed...!
We took the new metro to the top I love these perspectives, the hills the city is built on.
The tower is a timber helix. You walk up on one side of the helix and down on the other. It's 35m high, quite a few steps!
Just bought this second hand, and most of it's wonderful! (just a sticky trackpad button)

The houses do get a little wider further up! My friend lives there, it's lovely.

I'm afraid this is the last picture my camera took before failing miserably. What is it with canons and lenses getting stuck??
