  1. Having just passed through the port in the course of travelling on the ferry to the UK,
    I can say that it is one of the bleakest places on earth, and the roads to it similarly bleak if going East. (Going towards Amsterdam is much less ugly.) As I am very familiar with dock areas I can say it does not have to be like that. Durban or Cape Town would be two examples. Hamburg another. Even Calais is less oppressive.
