Good Old East Europeans

I saw some East European immigrants loading a car outside their house. I could see through the open doorway that there were loads of pairs of shoes in their hallway!

Yes the practice is more commonplace in Eastern Europe (it would be interesting to know why)As we get more immigration from those countries, let's hope that the practice will spread amongst people born and bred in the UK as well.

I think it probably comes down to two factors:

1) Cold winters with lots of snow.
2) Filthy streets because of a disorganised infrastructure and industrial pollution.

In Balkan countries like Albania and Bulgaria, there may be another factor, the influence of Turkish rule.
