I don't know if anyone else has seen any of these programmes (BBC2 Mondays at 9pm). They are interesting, because they contrast luxury with necessity, looking at very different hotels around the world and the people who depend on them for an income. The best one so far, I think, was the second one (still available on i player) looking at a hotel in Ecuador, built in the rain forest and constructed mainly from glass so that guests can observe the forest throughout the day. It was built on land which had been bought by a local entrepreneur because he wanted to save a section of land from being destroyed by logging, and also wanted people to experience the forest for themselves in order to appreciate it. Interesting, amazing and moving.
The richer we have become materially, the poorer we have become morally and spiritually. We have learned to fly in the air like birds and swim in the sea like fish, but we have not learned the simple art of living together as brothers and sisters.
