French Electrics

Being a retired Electrical Engineer some examples of French Electrical engineering astound me.

This picture, taken at a distribution point at Lencloitre market, is a typical example.

Electrical safety, I hope that this is provided with appropriate protection, which it may well be.

Our house electrical system trips when you look at it so it may well not be quite as bad as it looks and it does look grim.

Can totally agree with you about the somewhat casual attitude to electricity - of which I have a huge and rational fear. My house was obviously powered up by someone with a little knowledge and no fear whatsoever... though nothing here beats the unusual showers of Brazil that are essentially an open element in a shower head. I used to shower in flip-flops.
