4/16.- Sein, the borough (2)


Along the seafront, the borough sports a few hotels and restaurants specializing in fish and other seafood.  In the inner borough, the houses are huddled together to give the gales a minimum grip on the dwellings.  The streets are narrow -- just wide enough to roll barrels of salted fish or beer through the village.  The closeness of the houses has been viewed as symbolic of the closely-knit community.  Today as in earlier times, people move around on foot or by bike.  Vehicles are rare and belong to the fisheries or public services.  Today, what with the shrinking local population, most houses have become holiday homes.
