Try to find street view on some different page. Bratislava had aslo street view for 2yrs before google on norc.sk

and also some other Slovak towns, so I bet Germany is so big and developed country that it has to be somewhere on the internet

I guess this is the first time a traffic jam got it's own wikipedia article?

Couple of month ago, I happen to run over two foxes with my car... I managed to avoid one, but not the other. It died, the driver (me) was ok
But the forward license plate was a little deformed by the accident...

A couple of years ago a friend of mine was ran into by a deer in a small forest area within the boundaries of Tallinn. She managed to brake a little, otherwise the deer would've ran into the passenger side door. But still, the right wing was damaged and also the front passenger-side headlight. Police was just near by but since the deer ran away, there was nothing to do for them any more.

To continue the animal-topic: In April, 2008, a bear was ran over by the car of our defence minister Jaak Aaviksoo. It happened on the E263 highway. The car got damaged but unfortunately the bear was killed. Later, however, the bear was stuffed and the money coming from the sale went to charity(the selling price was more than € 10,000).

The car after the accident:

Hey everyone, I have a question that maybe someone here is able to answer. I'm thinking of buying a new car abroad and then importing it. I've understood that in countries that levy a lot of taxes on new cars retailers need to keep prices down in order to keep the end prices not to excessive. So my question is which EU-15 country (except the UK and Ireland, for obvious reasons) has the lowest price of a new car, cleared of taxes and fees that I only need to pay in the country of import? Denmark?

I think this has been discussed earlier in this thread, but I'm not sure on which page.

I remember people in the UK used to go to Holland to take advantage of the weak Euro to buy cars. The EC at the time ruled that car dealers could not refuse to provide a RHD vehicle. However given the state of the Euro against the pound even if you could get a LHD car in the UK I doubt it would be the cheapest place to go.

I'm in Brig, Switzerland right now. Unfortunately, it will snow tonight at elevations over 1500 meters. I don't have chains or winter tires so I will postpone my plan to clinch some high Alpine passes. My campsite is at 700 meters, so I expect a cold night.

I've crossed through Brig two years ago on my way to Locarno. It's a beautiful landscape there but I imagine it can be a cold place when snowing, so I wish you the warmer possible staying in the campsite, Chris, and also a great vacation.
