A final de cuentas, esto es un asunto de higiene pero humana. Así que dejemonos de cochinadas y a lavarnos las manos con regularidad :)

Big Dig

The Channel Tunnel includes three parallel tunnels, two for rail traffic and a central tunnel for services and security. The often-considered idea of constructing a tunnel under the English Channel was revived in 1986 by the United Kingdom and France and a rail tunnel was chosen over other proposals. Digging began on both sides of the Strait of Dover in 1987–88 and the tunnel officially opened 15 years ago on May 6, 1994. The tunnel runs for 31 miles (50 km) between England and France and is used by freight and passenger trains, which can travel at speeds as high as 100 miles (160 km) per hour. An accident in September 2008 completely shut the tunnel for two days, followed by a partial shutdown for five months for repairs. This partial closure was partly responsible for a considerable loss in revenue, including a drop of 23% in the first quarter of 2009. The tunnels were reopened on February 19, 2009 by the managing company, Eurotunnel.

top flight

Seoul, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Nagoya, Japan are the world's four best airports, according to the annual Airport Service Quality Survey released by Geneva-based Airports Council International. Those flight hubs impressed the more than 200,000 passengers at 126 airports from around the world who took part in the quarterly airport surveys and rated the passenger experience based on more than 30 service-quality factors, including courtesy, cleanliness, and overall ambience. While Asian airports aren't immune to the economic downturn and the fall in airline traffic that has come with it, governments around the region are intent on maintaining their lead. Big expansion projects are underway, for instance, in Shanghai and Seoul. The top performing airports in other regions were Zurich, Switzerland (Europe), Halifax, Canada (North America), Guayaquil, Ecuador (Latin America & Caribbean), Tel Aviv (Middle East) and George, South Africa (Africa).

Lástima que no me toca cruzar por ninguno de ellos... :P
