Well, the last time I had English was a long time ago at school (about 5,5 years ago). My grammar fades sometimes you know.

Sometimes I wonder how would this SSC section thrive without OT?

Nah, a little joke every now and then would do no harm.

What about this mega ringroad around Moskva? I haven't heard of it a long time. It supposedly would be the longest ringroad in the world.

The worst is: I still have English at school and I even take the IB-program. That says something about the Dutch education

And how's the motorway between St. Petersburg and Moscow going? Are they still planning these incredible high tolls?

No, the MKAD is like 110 kilometers. Some US Beltways are longer, and the London and Berlin beltways are longer too. I believe the MKAD the longest continuous 2x4 beltway in Europe. (or maybe the world too).

I wouldn't count for much in terms of expanding M10

Improvement; I was expecting "good". Btw, if you remember this guy, edolen1 (used to be a mod), he was the best Slovene of his age in English language (of all Slovenes of his age, not just here on SSC, at least of those competing), so now that he's gone, I'm the best.

About the mega-beltway: didn't they start building it recently, or I was just dreaming?

Can your account be deleted, btw? And edolen1 can always return if he wants to, right?

Thanks for the info about this Moscow-St. Petersburg highway. It's like 11 billion euros, quite an investment!
