Binu and the Great Wall

Binu And The Great Wall is a wonderful myth retold in the words of Su Tong, the author of ‘Rice’.  The myth of Binu and how her tears washed away the Great Wall have been passed down through the ages. It is a tale of hardship, brutality and undying love. Su Tong’s version of the myth, brings to the reader the harshness and brutality that led to the constuction of the wall and the terrible effects it had on the common people.

In the UK, disabled parking is allowed by a system known as the Blue Badge system. The government has released a Blue badge map where you can search for parking etc on an interactive map. This includes airports and train stations and shopmobility centres. A shopmobility centre is a wheelchair/scooter lending facility in a city for the less mobile to facilitate shopping and walking distances.
Overview of the Blue Badge map

The Blue Badge map can be used to find:

* Blue Badge parking bays in 101 towns and cities across the UK
* Red Route parking bays in London
* petrol stations and their service facilities on major routes in the UK
* accessible public toilets in 101 towns and cities across the UK
* railway stations and their accessibility
* Underground stations and their accessibility in London
* taxi ranks
* shopmobility centres
* accessible beaches
* wheelyboat locations
* mobility centres
* locations of interest, like town halls, hospitals, museums and tourist attractions
* parking rules for all councils in the UK

The people who did this map (Pie Guides) also have other useful maps which can be bought.

I'll be interested to try it out and judge its accuracy. So far it seems to be accurate for Coventry.
