Most of you probably know the ship called Lisco Gloria that burned pretty much to ashes this weekend near Denmark. The funny thing is that this ferry was carrying, among other things, 3 speed cameras from Estonia that had been calibrated in Germany and were on their way back to Estonia. So for now only 13 speed cameras remain on Tallinn-Tartu highway. Unfortunately this also caused the Estonian Road Administration around € 100,000 of property damage.

LDV is a British company, you can see loads of LDV vans in the UK. Some years ago the company was acquired by Russian GAZ, and started producing left hand drive vans too, which entered the European market.

It depends. I think the non-euro Czech Republic (and maybe even Hungary) is much better organized as a country compared to euro Greece.

They look like wolves, because they don't seem to be quite aggressive.

First watch the video:



And the video description:
Quote:
Or, how to spend $1 million in just over 12 minutes (actually, about 3 1/2 days).

[CORRECTION: I previously had said $3 million, which is what I had heard on the streets. I've since been contacted by a representative of the SFMTA who assures me that the cost was in fact $1 million.]

This is a time-lapse video showing the replacement of the MUNI tracks in front of my house. Demolition began on the evening of Friday, October 8, and work continued around the clock until early in the morning of Tuesday, October 12. The MUNI folks were nice enough to distribute earplugs to those of us in the immediate vicinity.
Now that's impressive!

PS: The original video is on , but I searched for it also on youtube because I don't know how to add a vimeo video here

You can add a vimeo video using (vimeo)Here the number of the video(/vimeo), but with [] instead of (). Look:

I was just watching some videos from 11.9.2001 - "w Nowym Jorku"

and I found polish version of New York (Nowy Jork) really funny

Do you have more funny names like this one?

Dresden?

I don't like exonyms on signage. Sooner or later you have to switch to the endonym anyway, and otherwise it's just clutter on the signs.

Yes, Dresden.

Győr=Ráb
Pécs= Päťkostolie
Székesfehérvár=Stoličný Belehrad
Graz=Štajerský Hradec
Kärnten=Korutánsko

but we use just "Korutánsko"

but I bet you have even more : )

Yes, Dresden. However, Czechs (in Czech language, Dresden is called in the same way) don't use their names for international destinations on signs:

The picture below comes from D8, as well, and makes me wanting to start ski season now:
