Some figures published in a national paper made me smile and raise an eyebrow, just a quick comparison between my home county and New York:
New York population 22m Dorset 700,000
10,194 per sq km 159 per/sq km
12.5% over 65 29% over 65
Famous sons Jay Z, Frank Sinatra Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall,T Hardy
Tourist Attractions. Empire State, Statue of Chesil Beach, Pirate Adventure
Sure is quiet round here, I guess there is no chance of the "Sex in the City" Girls coming here....not for another thirty years anyway.
Still a great place tho!
