It is such a pity that so little care was taken of historic centres in the postwar years. Is there any way to improve that particular type of blight?
I missed that; I often read Let's move to, though I doubt I'm moving anywhere now. I'd like to do some extended stays in places, but don't really need to learn either English or French. I've worked at enough international conferences and meetings to be relatively familiar with most major forms of those, though one can always learn more! I do want to read up more on the Hanseatic League in England. Some of those buildings are stunners.
