Meanwhile in Senj, Croatia
A woman felt with her car in the sea, the mayor of the town suddenly dives in the water saving her life.

Light summer nights have arrived to the North. There is no midnight sun south of the arctic circle, but no darkness either.

This picture was taken last night at 01:23 at the darkest moments of the night: about 2.5 hours after the sunset and 2.5 hours before the sunrise. The latitude is 61 degrees 15 minutes, and the altitude of the Sun was about -6.5 degrees.

There is an annual open day of construction sites in the Netherlands, at the first Saturday in June. Today I went for a 500 kilometer drive to visit the A2 motorway tunnel in Maastricht. It's the largest double-deck tunnel in the world (4 tubes, all with 4.7 m clearance and up to 11 meters wide per tube). Very impressive. Circa 8500 people visited this construction site.

2.6 kilometers. The length is not extraordinary, but the layout is. Most double-deck tunnels are just single bore tubes with a very low clearance (such as Duplex A86 in Paris). This one has 4 tubes with 2 lanes each (4x2) at full motorway standards including shoulders and clearance of 4.7 meters.

A division between local traffic and through traffic. Through traffic is the bottom level.

Weird stuff don't come just from Russia and Romania
This was spotted on the SS52bis in Italy between Tolmezzo and the Austrian border (not by me, but by a FB user):
