[I have a tremendous fear of heights. I can't see myself using these devices, though they look very safe. But in true European style they are very efficient and creative. In the first video you see a lift from a century ago. This is what Whites used to do and work with. It is truly incredible. Why don't we appreciate our own people more? It gives me the creeps watching that old lift and the heights it goes. It is super efficient and lovely, but I'm afraid I'm too much of a wussy baby to use this. But I admire the creativity as well as bravery of our people! We have so much that we are capable of. Jan]
