About 8 months ago, Belgian publisher Plantyn asked me to use one of my pictures in their earth science book "Geo". You might remember that.

Well, today, I recieved a copy of the book. It's the center right picture.

Nice. Seriously though, that sucks. What valuable did they take except the key?

I did a little roadtrip this morning, into the Randstad metropolis. I haven't been there much in the past year.

Fuel consumption: 20.8 liters (4.8 l / 100km, 1:20,2 or 48 mpg)
Time: 10.15 - 14.45 (4.5 hours)
Vmax = ~130 km/h / 80 mph
Vavg = 93 km/h / 58 mph

That video is quite old, I remember it seeing 1 or 2 years ago.

I'm finally getting somewhat better in Polish. I understand more words every day, and can even understand some words that driving instructor said in the video.

jak się masz?

This is from a TV programme, but I don't know if it was fake. Probably not.

BTW When the guy is speaking you can hear some Silesian influence, but very soft one.
