Suddenly, I have a huge veranda, affording me outdoor dining opportunities, a new vantagepoint from which to more closely admire my building's unique architectural features (see below), and heretofore unthinkable ease in washing my windows!
Just climb outside. Scaffolding is all over this city. It works best if it has been installed on your building or that of a close friend. To reduce feelings of claustrophobia, scaffolding should be attached to your floor only. Bring some lunch, perhaps a pillow for the really hot nights, and if you are feeling industrious--a bucket of water and a squeegee.
