I found a nice old stamp thing (I think that this is a postcard, but I'm not sure ) on the internet:



Edit: It is a psot card,

Quote:
Um raro exemplo de correio enviado de Lourenço Marques para Mashonaland via ZAR: A mensagem tem data de 2 de Agosto de 1894, e o postal foi colocado no correio no mesmo dia. Os selos no verso registam um itinerário via Komatipoort, na fronteira Moçambique-ZAR (4 Agosto de 1894), Pretória (8 Agosto), Pietersburg (10 Agosto), Tuli na fronteira ZAR-Mashonaland (12 Agosto) e Salisbury (25 Agosto de 1894).

I'm already back, there was no time to go outside Bratislava. I saw and walked through most of the important points of the city (I don't like museums) and was in Bratislava already twice before, but with the bus.

You (your major) should definitely do something about roads. You made all those communist blocks nicer but roads looks like stayed the same.

And hey, that's expensive gasoline you have, beer was much cheaper.

Well some of the major ones got new layout last year (Šancová ulica, Trnavská cesta) but yea that's true. Well I think that city has changed much much more than just ugly commie blocks (which stays ugly anyway). Some of the major historic building were renovated including castle, river bank is changing too (Eurovea, River Park) and much more. And there is still long way to go for our lovely EU capital with probably the lowest budged.

All you like is beer and that's it?

So do I.

Typical. The toll-free substandard Autovía is full of traffic while the tolled Autopista is empty. I think the only reason these tolled motorways in Spain can exist is that the construction costs there are incredibly low compared to other European countries. Many Autovías average € 2 - 6 million per kilometer unless they're crossing mountain ridges.

That's about the minimum price/km for a new motorway in my country (on flat terrain)...

Almost every single building has been renovated in the area of old town which is/used to be surrounded by city walls, this area is called Korzo (pedestrian zone basically). Old town is larger than this area but I think that comparing to other CE towns and cities it is quite good how many buildings have been renovated within the last couple of years.

Nice thread - http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...555753&page=70

I've never been as nervous in my life as until 10 minutes ago when I was informed that I do not have freaking multiple sclerosis. I'm having plenty of symptoms though (most notably paresthesia ("pins and needles")). Looks like it's because of poor posture. What a relief.

I understand that you do not have multiple sclerosis. You should be happy about that

I'm happy for you! MS would've been really rough.

My mother is a product manager for an MS medicine so I'm quite well informed about it.

^ Thanks. I know a girl who got it some five years ago, which is why I was so freaked out when 'pins and needles' just wouldn't end. It's been a month since I got them, and everyone was on vacation last week because of holidays, so I was going nuts (I didn't go to hospital, I rather paid €270 for magnetic resonance of the brain).
