I know it beacame an habbit, especially that his twin brother is one of the candidates for becoming president.

I am writing Traian Băsescu during the last 6 years and I hope the next 4 will pas quickly so we can change him

No offence: there was a joke in Romania after the plane crashed: "After the faith hit Poland so strong, Romania, an ally of Poland, is going to help: we will donate what we don't need anymore: the president and the government".

Yep. No surprises there - no other politician from their party stood a chance in competition. He stalled the decision for some time after his brother's death, but it was pretty much obvious from the very beginning.

Great, I suppose someone would have to be the right-wing candidate.

If you'd decide to use the ferry and if you'd have 2-2.5 hours to spare, you should visit the cliffs of Mn (2x40km detour). They are a spectacular sight. Note for the telecommunication geeks: you can receive 11 cellular networks from the top of the cliff

That way you can avoid buying the Austrian vignette and you don't have to take the same highways twice.
Thank you for all the suggestions.

10:44 and a traffic jam on A28 near Amersfoort. The morning rush on this motorway lasts very long... It was still a 9 km queue at that time (solely caused by traffic volumes, no roadworks or accidents).

Yes, I travel down A28 a few times per week after rush hour, and interchange Hoevelaken (near Amersfoort) is always backed up until around 11 am.

Are they going to make it 2x3? Or at least build one new lane near the exits.

Nah, the problem is the cloverleaf. They need to rebuild it to a stack interchange, as there is a lot of traffic changing directions here. It's planned to be implemented between 2015 and 2020. Right now they aren't very clear about the exact design, but apparently, it requires a lot of ROW acquisition, so assume it will be a big interchange.

They're not suitable for high traffic volumes, especially when there is a lot of traffic changing motorways.

Less sharp corners, thus faster traffic flow, maybe

Plus it allows for 2 - 3 lane connectors, instead of a tight curve with one lane. So the traffic flow is MUCH better with direct fly-overs. Cloverleafs are nice for low-trafficked roads.

Flyover:

Can anyone explain why there are no any of those massive miltilevel stack interchanges in Germany as ones that can be found in cities in USA, China or some other Asian cities? Is it due to some aesthetical, noise or other requirements? Personaly I prefer the "badass" concrete interchanges which look so damn cool.

Traffic volumes in Germany are not particularly high, and the busiest interchanges did get some direct fly-overs, but stacks are rare. The only stack I know of is a minor exit (A45/A480).
