And they all fall down

It’s been over a week since the canteen at my faculty closed for renovations. Rather, it’s going to be torn down and another newer and more modern one built in its place. The new one is proposed to have more food stalls, and more space to attend to the needs of the growing crowd.

I guess this is one of those things that happen often here. Lack of space, the need to become more and more cosmopolitan. This is manifested by the upgrading of places that are full of history and are a part of many shared memories, replacing them with constructions that reflect a new, spic and span image of a modern cosmopolitan society. Even graves are exhumed and the dead cremated and placed in special places which almost model our high rise government flats.

I’m seriously going to miss those red brick walls.
