Hunter Radiology Hunter St Newcastle WestI read a blog post recently about a German postgraduate student who went to Washington to study. She was aghast at the waste of energy in a land of plenty and commented on how lights were left on everywhere.

It occurred to me that Newcastle is lit up at night like a christmas tree so I took a detour on my way home from (driving to buy) buying (wastefully packaged) takeaway to see the good, the bad and the ugly.

Full marks to health for knowing their budget is tight. Home
