Is it a bird?

Is it a 'plane?

No, it's Window Cleaning Man!

Three of them in fact. They start on the 30th floor and they work down.

Here they are about half way down, on a wooden seat, a couple of ropes and some Buddhist blessing, I don't doubt.

We live on the 25th floor and I don't have any vertigo but I couldn't do this.

Michelle said...

Wow. That just looks scary. I bet they don't get paid very well to take those chances either.

Leigh said...

Can't very ask them to go back if they've missed a bit...

Lane said...

Wow. Hope they remember to have a wee before they start that job.

JJ said...

Liz, me too. No vertigo, just plain and sensible fear.

Michelle, yes, I'm sure you'll be right. And insurance? I doubt it.

Leigh, no, I don't think that would go down very well.

Lane, LOL.

You live on the 25th floor??? OMG I am so never ever coming to visit you! I'm hopeless with heights.

JJ said...

Zinnia, Ha ha ha. Whoops! We could close the blinds for you ... would that help?

My step father in law is also afraid of heights. My MiL didn't tell him we lived up high. He did nearly have a heart attack when he saw which button was pushed in the lift!

Scary, scary job!

At last they have hard hats on, in Mexico they only wore them if it was raining!

Debs said...

I couldn't even look up at them, it would make me feel too dizzy.

Oh my golly jeepers!

JJ said...

M&T, I'm afraid they aren't hard hats, they are soft hats... to keep the sun out of their eyes, I suspect.

Debs, shocking aren't they? They were just outside my window when I was making tea today! Eeek.

Flowerpot, I know!

Helen, you took the words right out of my mouth.
