A small volcanic vent suddenly appeared near Rome's airport.
Looks like the dwarves delved too greedily and too deep this time..

Greetings from Schweppenhausen, Germany. The campsite is crawling with Dutch people, I haven't seen any non-Dutch here. Even the owners are Dutch.

It's not a very large roadtrip. I had to cut back on large trips a bit after I got € 1000 in repairs on my car last month. I plan to visit several areas of Rheinland-Pfalz state. Man, local roads are disastrous in this area. Some District Roads are full of potholes.

Welcome to Germany. It's not limited to the area where you are only. Their road network is way overrated.

That reminds me: do you still have footage of that Polish road from that was so bad that it was better to use the roadside?

I still couldn't find a very bad road in Germany until now...
And I find signage and markings one of the best.

It rained very hard for about 3 hours today in Arad, Romania, and the water evacuation system couldn't handle the situation anymore, so this happened:

Doing budget cuts, too? Man, I have already dropped all accents, tildes, macrons, etc. when writting in English and I'm thinking on going to all lowercase.

The whole Thyrrenian side of Italy is full of volcanic areas, from Larderello (Tuscany), where the first geothermal power plant was installed (currently providing 10% of the world geothermal energy), to Rome's extinct volcanoes (Colli Albani), down to well known Vesuvius, Etna and smaller volcanic islands.

"Dupljaja chariot" (found in Dupljaja near Vršac) is a chariot made of terracotta around 3500 years ago.



It's also shown at Serbian current registration certificate and driving licence:





It's a proof that we in Serbia are rolling the wheels since the Bronze age!

LOL.

I had a boss once who justified her failure to capitalize and punctuate by saying her time was too valuable for the extra keystrokes.

They have painted in my hometown a 48.8 meter-long crosswalk . Here is a news article, in Spanish but the most interesting thing is the pic: http://www.heraldo.es/noticias/arago...47011_302.html.

Nope, there are a few around the 100 meter mark. Anyway, crosswalks around 50 meters long are usually found in large cities, and my hometown only has 0.05 million (50.000) inhabitants.

But at least I have crossed the widest crosswalk in the world, located in Madrid. Heck, I believe is wider than long!

It is like a joke popular in Slovakia.

American archaeologists have found an ancient pipe in America and said "Thus Indians have invented the water supply".
Russian archeologists have found an ancient cable in Russia and said "Thus Russians have invented the telephone"
Slovak archaeologists have found nothing in Slovakia and said "Thus Slovaks have invented wi-fi connection"

That was in Germany. The footage didn't come out well due to shade / sunbeams in the woods.
