So I'm almost Dutch (and Belgian) now. The border is only 4 (or 7) km away from here.

(I'm living now in Aachen for studying)

Well New York City got a Slice , of everybody , don't Jay walk in Little Italy or you'll become a Hood Ornament. In Chinatown , you end on the menu if you cut someone off, in some parts of Brooklyn they put you in a Canal if you cut them off. Paris is nothing , oh please , what are they going to do , throw Cheese and Wine at you

Try driving a bus through Abcoude during rush hour, that's some real horror

hehe i just wanted to say that. Napoli is great stuff, although i was little bit dissapointed there (or maybe i just adapted well ). of course, Cairo, Teheran, Mumbai and similar cities are special category

That looks very cool. Actually LED lights in all traffic areas will probably do a small revolution in coming years.

Regarding chaotic traffic ... rather try Saigon or Hanoi, although Phnom Penh has the most chaotic traffic I've experienced. Palermo is less than nothing to them.

It goes up and down, I can't really explain it. There's no consistent viewing.

Maybe whenever you post something from your flickr acct on ssc or other forums, the numbers go up, then after a short while it goes down again.
Same thing with my photobucket account.

The most important crossroads in Ljubljana is actually called 'Bavarian Court'.
