The motorcyclists were a**holes. Yeah, let's force a car to stop in the middle of the freeway for no f***ing reason. I would freak out as well.

(Didn't have a gypsy discussion quite a while, right? )

Are you sure there are gypsies there? All I saw when I was there was that huge multi-storey parking.

EDIT: Damn you're right. But it's very recent:
http://www.milanotoday.it/cronaca/ro...ina-gobba.html

The article is dated 11 June 2013. They weren't there on March.

This was the first time that I saw them camping in their tents.
And that closed parking lot beside the garage is full of garbage, like at Lunik IX. Sorry for mentioning your relatives when I arrived there and saw surroundings.

Never mind, my relatives are quite fine. Although my dad had a very minor car accident last saturday morning. When did you curse them?

BTW, did you enjoy Milan?

sunday early afternoon

city is just as i expected: nice architecture, quite crowded, thousands of Japanese tourists, huge area. however, A4 at Milano area has surprised me - it is not that crowded as i expected. you can drive 90-110 all the time there.

Quebec's weather channel keeps showing pictures of snow in Romania. :-)

24 (that's celsius...) here today. Record for the date was "23.9" - set in 1963, so that's probably a conversion of 75 Fahrenheit. Whether it was really 23.9, 23.7, 24.1, etc., who knows?

It was the coldest October 1st in the history of Romanian weather. We never had snow on this date before, but now we got some roads closed because of it.

Some pictures taken on October 1st near Brasov, Romania: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...#post107572905

94 people died and 250 are unaccounted for in the deadliest maritime incident in Italy since 1996, when a ship of illegal immigrants from India sank killing 283.

According to the first rescuers, a ship containing 500 people from Somalia and Eritrea caught fire at Isola dei Conigli, near Lampedusa island. People aboard, trying to escape the fire, moved to one side of the boat causing it to capsize. Only 151 were rescued.

Hi all

I remember that a thread about compulsory things in cars for every country was opened and we talked about them.

I tried to find it in the finder but wasn't able.


Can anyone help me?

Tx in advance

Today I finally met Cinxxx, his lovely girlfriend and a friend of them

Nice chap, he had a taste of Italian urban mess

As far as I remember, he's the first SSC user I met in real life (excluding people I knew from other fora). Well, hope to meet some more... anyone who's around Venice, let me know

Yep! During most of the day you can do 90-110 km/h, while in rush hours you can still perform an outstanding 90-110 m/h...

Just arrived for about 15 min at the hotel. Had to drive my friend back to Venice too.

Nice to meet you too, Wilhem275, you are also the my first SSc meet
And thanks for the tour of Padova. We went to Verona after and it is really very nice. Spent some 6 hours there.

Now I will try to sleep. Good night to you all
