Correct!   From the film, 'The bridge over the River Kwai.'
                   It was built on the Kelani river, Sri Lanka


Anyone else got one ready to go?     :-)

Where else but in Scotland would you take the roof off your castle so as to avoid paying the Council tax ?

Old news but Martin posted Bridge on River Kwai.  I went to Kanchanaburi (not the location of the original WWII bridge but a little downstream where the bridge is now).  It's full of tourists and tat  -there's large black monoliths with the names of those who died building the railway which I read most of in between folk taking pics/selfies.  We went up stream by private boat hire, had to convince the guy NOT to take us to the tourist tat -which was a bit of a mission and refusal to get out the boat where he wanted to go.  There is the "J.E.A.T.H." (Death) museum upstream.  Fascinating but absolutely horrific stories and pictures that will stay with me forever.  There is a large immaculately well kept war memorial with a huge field of crosses and plaques -most guys that died there building the railway seemed to be 18-30yrs old.  A lot of Scots and Aussies.  I was there with two other friends and we all had tears in our eyes by the end.  We were apparently literally the ONLY folk that went to the museum and memorial that day, everyone goes just to take pics of the later steel bridge downstream and buy tat to say they were there.

Sorry, I just had to say that -it touched me forever visiting there.  It's a cheap taxi ride from Bangkok (relatively speaking!).  We tipped our driver a tenner for waiting all day and he was well chuffed!  Plus we saw stuff that most I imagine don't see -nobody seemed to care about the significance of the place.

...hmm Highland council just announced a 3% rise. I'm ground floor flat  but with my own front door.  I have a piched roof over my door, wonder if I can negate the rise by knocking it down?  LoL.
