Some days later I also climbed Quandary Peak (4350 m), but since I got acclimatized I didn't even have problems with oxygen.

I'm sorting a lot of pictures I made on I-70, US 24, US 6 and various Colorado routes... next week they will all be online on their respective threads...

A very nice example of recovered Hungarian-Slovak relationships emerged yesterday :-) There is an Ice Hockey fever in Slovakia and the very first game on world championship were played against Hungary. There was a reportage from pub in Nove Zamky in Slovakia (mixed area). Whole pub was decorated by Slovak flags, jerseys and flags except two tables that were decorated by Hungarian flags and jerseys The owner said it was the "sector for guests" Unfortunately no one came. It is much better than it was ten years ago when we were blocking our presidents each other or making barricades on border crossings.

Or maybe fortunately. Otherwise police intervention may have been required in that pub.

I doubt that in mixed areas where people are used to it.
Usually it's outsiders (from any of the sides) who cause trouble in traditional mixed places.

I visited more than one city in Slovakia with important Hungarian presence and people had no problem switching between languages. I had the impression that some were also switching from one to the other during the same conversation.

I dunno, I think if you walked into a bar in, say, Montreal during game season with a Toronto Maple Leafs jersey you'd get some reaction from the crowd. But they would speak to you in French or English no problem at all

It's obvious. The other 2 didn't have any chance.

reminds me of a different car
Quote:
A new Russian and an old man lie injured side-by-side in an emergency room:
— How did you get here, old fella?
— I had an old Zaporozhets car, and I put my war-trophy Messerschmitt jet engine in it. While driving on a highway, I saw a Ferrari ahead and tried to overtake it. My speed was too high, I lost control and crashed into a tree. And how did you get here?
— I was driving my Ferrari when I saw a Zaporozhets overtaking me. I thought that my car might have broken down and was actually standing still. So I opened the door and walked out...

The temperature in the Netherlands dropped from 24°C to 12°C in two hours yesterday. A week-long period of summer weather is replaced by much colder weather, rivaling the temperatures of Christmas.

A Hungarian guy caught himself 13 times in the same radar in one day in Sebeborci, NE Slovenia. He had to pay €5,250 and got 55 penalty points.

Also, "sebe-borci" means "self-fighters".

I came across an old photo series of French A320 which I took in 2009.

This is what Google Maps looked like in 2009.
