My Mercedes looks the same, except the part that is shiny, is actually rust

Also, the police is more active. I've even seen some speed cameras. Particularly officers resting in shadow with assembled tripod with something aiming at heading traffic.
Speed cameras can be seen on A1,A2 and on so called "motorway" between Thessaloniki and Evzoni.

We had a massive storm in NE England last night. Houses & cars damaged, and reports of ducks & lambs killed by hailstones.

The forecast is for more of the same tonight.

Your parents returned from Romania?
What impressions did they tell?

Gorgeous country, with many renovated buildings, not falling apart like in Ceaușescu times. They also visited the Bran Castle, of course. They watched Bram Stoker's Dracula on the way there. They said they could've been a little longer in Bucharest though (just from 6 pm to 1 pm next day). They also visited Arad, but sadly not Timișoara. They liked both, cities and nature. They just complained about roads a bit.

Apparently Romania is making a lot of improvements regarding its infrastructure (not only roads) and economic policies, so it should stop being at the last spot of EU soon on those rankings.

I think Romania's problem is more like relative "isolation" from Western Europe; it's not so close (especially if you take into account lack of motorways).

There will always be a country in the 'last spot', no matter how well it is performing. Romania and Bulgaria will likely be ranking last in many EU statistics for a very long period of time, despite massive improvements in many indicators.

I think they can overtake Greece and Romania can overtake Bulgaria.

I don't now why they don't use plastic for Euro notes too, they would last longer.

There's also the problem of media influence in western countries. Most people perceive it as a very poor and dangerous country, only because some of its citizens commit crimes here.
