I admit it sometimes I just don't feel tired when I should. Other times I fall asleep when I shouldn't. So what's the answer? I watched Hot Gear on BBC America. It was incredibly entertaining and sad at the same time.
Here's the scary part: Spain
The first city in Spain they arrived in was beautiful. It was right on the water, had huge beautiful apartments and absolutely no people. It was pristine but had no one there. Drive down the road some . . . look! An airport! It was great for their drag race but it was an airport that had been completed 5 years ago and was totally abandoned. Now time to find somewhere for the night. Next town. No one but lots of new houses. The trio stayed in an abandoned home that was truly beautiful with great view. On now to Madrid. Still basically no one. No one on the streets. No one driving. The center of Madrid has actually started to deteriorate in the garden areas and everything has that vacant feel even though the buildings appear to be in great repair. To just show the how empty the City was, they set up a street race in the heart of the city.
Spain looked like something gorgeous where everyone left because of some horrible disease or something. In truth the issue was the economy. Spain's unemployment rate is over 50% and a large number have no income at all. To survive the Spanish are leaving.
So why is that the scariest show I've ever seen? Spain didn't look like a slum. It didn't look crime ridden. It just looked empty and I thought, we could look that way too.
