22. those miners-

when i was an apprentice carpenter the company i worked for also did tunnels.
they were building a section of 'deep tunnel'- a waste water project. i didnt work on that project but a lot of my sisters did.
i got to visit one rainy day. i was only down there for a couple hours and i tell you, i would have hopped on that elevator too. i dont know how people do it.

also this one-
