Walk to work day

A bunch of us walked to work for a change. We get driven everywhere, so this made a nice change and I got to see a bit of the weird countryside-industrial estate mixture that is HiTec City. It's only about a 20 minute walk.

A lot of women are construction workers here. There is constant building going on with new office blocks and apartment blocks going up. Almost all the women workers wear brightly coloured saris as they sledgehammer boulders, dig trenches or carry materials around. They have a version of the standard yellow hard hat with a hole in the top, flattened which is used to better balance items on their head. In many places construction continues all night.
