In each country or rural town there is a strong trade culture involving the local carpenters, bricklayers, plumbers and so forth who have settled for a simpler and cheaper lifestyle than in the city. Because of this small but very active trade community, competition is good and the quality of workmanship is often better than in the city. A bad operator will, of necessity, have to leave town!
