I heard that on the Portuguese radio this morning .

I know that the plane crash was months ago, but when that bridge collapsed in Minneapolis (I-30WSNS?) weren't the flags there at half-mast for a very long time?

What are the possible prices for cycle paths around the world? I would like to know if anywhere else have these "golden" paths like in Prague, where 3 km of cycle path cost 6 mil euro. Thus 2 million euro per km of cycling path... :O.


Blue is the path, yellow and azure are the bridges, yellow build, azure rebuild.

Yeah, I saw this path and how expensive it was in TV Show "Černé ovce". I always thought that Cezch are much more better in this case.

I think this highly depends on variables. For example, if the cycling path can be constructed within an existing right-of-way, or if expropriations are needed. Another issue is the number of bridges and tunnels. In the Netherlands it is known that cycle tunnels under existing roads can cost as much as € 5 - 10 million.

I can read nearly all Germanic and Romanic languages (i.e. French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and German, Danish, Swedish, Norwegian and English) to an extent that I can get the gist out of an article. I can speak Dutch, English, German and some French. I can also read the Greek and Cyrillic alphabets.

I can speak 4 languages (Spanish, English, French and, surprise, Catalan), and I can read Galician, Portuguese and Italian. Even I can read Greek characters!

I can speak just English and Slovak but understand little bit of German what I`d like to improve and I am learing Spanish. But anyway, Slovak language is enough to speak with some Slavic nations absolutely clearly - Cezchs, Polish and with some problems with Serb/Croatian people (sorry for this word) and Slovenian. When I am in these countries I am always speaking just Slovak and right now I have got Polish mate who can`t speak English so I am sometimes translating and I have realised that Polish language is really easier (after Cezch) for me as a Slovak than Croatian. And to imagine, in Cezch language we have also films in Slovakia.

For us, hungarians have a little handicap against you, because the Hugarian langueage is so different from indo-european languages.
I can speak Hungarian, English, Spanish, and a bit of German. Altough I'm currently in the learning phase. (I'm only 17)

I agree, but I think they did not had to go under the Ring of Utrecht or its station with their cycle path in this case. But I guess in this case if they could they woul... so high was the desire to spend the money.

Price/utility rationing should should be used. Prague first needs normal cycling grid allowing normal cycling around its current roads without being forced to acquire a high life insurence first.

Yeah, I heard you have kind of self-conscious because of it (no offence). Is it true that many Hungarian people can`t like deal with it?

Yes, it would be easier just listen and understand 4-5 other countries languages, just because it´s familiar.

Yeah, but on other hand there is a big advantage for people living in Slavic/Hungarian families/areas because they know one Slavic language so they can understand many nations but also know totaly different and hard language.
