www.mapy.cz has unveiled tourist maps and routes for the whole world. This is great upgrade. Hopefully the quality will one day reach that one of the Czech and Slovak tourist maps that www.mapy.cz provides.

Some of you may be interested in this special exhibition at the London design museum, to commemorate 50 years of British Road signs.

In the UK we use the standard European model of sign, using triangles and circles.

See these novelty redesigned signs.

I was on a bus going through the Judge Pregerson Interchange in Los Angeles the other day. Stunningly huge piece of infrastructure.

No good photos because my camera would only focus on the dirt on the bus windows, but here's something from wikipedia:

I thought it's pronounced "lodge". At least, that's how we pronounce it in Serbian.

^ I heard once that Ł at one time sounded like North American would pronounce regular L in English today.

Rowclaw just sounds horrible, at least Breslau is something

I definitely understand him. Would you bother to close you door, if you can do it automatically by hitting another car? Pure effectiveness.

You still can hear such "Ł" going out of mouth of older ladies from Warsaw. In many cases they have aristocratic roots. That "Ł" sounds pretty much like Serbian or Croatian "L".

It's really curious
I thought when trying to learn the language, I would make it easy and just say such archaic and aristocratic (and familiar!) way
But then the "normal" Ł ended up for me being entirely natural and I say it properly (unlike most things )

The evolution of the language is interesting. When my grandfather goes people ask, "where are you from?", "here!"

True, I've driven behind the same vehicle for hundreds of kilometers in France. Eventually you'll come up to somebody driving the same speed you want to drive.

Usualy when I do the road Romania-France, most of the time I find somebody that is going at the same speed than me (or a bit higher) and I follow him (not too close!!), I found that this is easier, and when it is a local (for example in Austria), I consider that if a local is going at that speed I could follow him without trouble (for exemple 140km/h in Austria, etc...)
