There were several fun things in the global news this morning. One of them is a project by the BBC called "The Box." They've purchased a cargo container, had it painted bright red with their logo on it and installed a GPS system inside. Today we learned it's loaded with scotch whiskey headed for China (isn't that interesting?) The BBC suggested we could have some fun and learn about the global economy, and probably learn a lot of nifty side stories, too.
I'm hooked . . I'll give it a go and try to follow along.
The reporters were sharing afterwards about homes they've seen built out of these containers.
I remember reading about bookstores made out of old shipping containers. All this said, this suggests a fun project.
