In Germany there are no legal prohibitions but everybody are allowed to ask Google to mask his/her house/car/etc. And so many people asked for that, that Google announced not to make any more Streetview in Germany.

Having nothing to do, I was looking on Google Maps about how many European capitals have a complete ring road (that encircle the whole city).

When I dropped the little yellow guy around Bucharest, I randomly stumbled across this:
https://maps.google.it/maps?q=bucare...,280.8,,1,6.83
It's a guy walking on the motorway!!

You're not all discussing the World Cup drawing? It's knocked Mandela down the home pages in Europe (well, okay, the ones I've glanced at).

What I personally saw those few times when I drove on the Romanian motorway A1 between Bucharest and Pitești:
  • hitchhikers
  • prostitutes
  • people selling flowers on the hard shoulder (emergency lane)
  • people selling mushrooms on the hard shoulder (emergency lane)
  • people crossing the motorway like if there was a pedestrian crossing
  • people stopped on the hard shoulder for peeing
  • a sheep herd (ok, not on the motorway, but 1 meter from the asphalt... but without anything that could prevent the sheeps from getting on the road)

Shortly after the motorway was opened near my home town I spotted an old lady crossing the motorway. My own video:

It seems a word borrowed from French, isn't it?

We're in the group with England, Uruguay and Costa Rica. Not very good, since the first two are quite strong adversaries and the match against England* will be held in the extremely hot and humid Manaus (in the Amazon forest).

Yes, England is correct there, since each of the 4 constituent nations of the UK has its own football team.

I did. It's really easy


============

Yesterday I was looking for a parking space in a supermarket's car park. I stopped for a while to let some one reverse out, then I noticed a car slowly moving out of a parking space. I assumed, it must have been an elderly driver trying to go back, so I had waited patiently. However, I realized there were no living creature sitting behind the steering wheel. Here are two pictures ilustrating that situation.





I also have a question: do you put your car on neutral (manuals) and pull hand brake or engage 1st gear with no hanbrake on, or maybe both?

I uses both handbrake and 1st gear, I was taught in that way at the driving school and continued doing that.

i saw that situation twice:
1. once in the center of Zagreb in tram zone, guy has parked his car at the midle of the road not to be obstacle to the trams
2. in my former firm we had parking lot at downhill. my chief's secretary parked without engaged handbrake and her car crashed into, you guess, our chief's car it was so freaking funny to all of us. except to him (interesting, I have met him today and we had nice chat)

i always park with handbrake, except in winter when i'm afraid of freezing of the cord.

I don't use handbrake except on steep grades (which obviously are very rare in the Netherlands). They say the handbrake can freeze solid if applied in winter. I don't know whether that's true.

I have a kind of routine when going to drive. The first thing I do when I get into the car is putting on the seatbelt, then start the engine and then turn on the lights if necessary. When parking, I always reverse into a spot. I don't leave it in reverse when parked though, I always put it in first gear. I practically never put it in neutral except for leaving the engine running while parked for a short amount of time (for example to take a photo from an overpass).
