Thanks. I don't think Flickr blocked photos since some people can see them (I can't though).

Google really loves the Opel Astra as their favorite Street View car








It makes sense. Majority of all Street View cars are Opel Astra (used in entire Europe continent, Singapore plus Australia under the Holden brand).....then followed by the Toyota Prius (I say at 20% and used in Japan, Hong Kong, Macau, South Africa)......then the remainder are other vehicles.

I guess Google secured a really great deal with Opel as the majority vehicle fleet provider for the Street View project

I am making a trip (an 'urban' one) to Madrid. I have a flight, a plan etc. - right now I'm hostel-hunting.
I've came across something that's clalled "Fabrizzo Guesthouse". It's dirt cheap, great location the photos looks very nice, it has free rooms and all - in short it's a great deal. But one thing threw me off.

The guesthouse has no webpage. A phone number is nowhere to be found. Only places in the web that mentions it are (numerous) hostel search engines. There is only one review of this venue, very enthusiastic one, made in June. It's supposed to be located at no. 6 Calle Felipe III. I thought that I'll check this location with Goovle Street View, but no luck there - it is a very small, pedestrianized street and there is no imagery. But I've found an image on Panoramio, here it is: http://www.flickr.com/photos/madridl...n/photostream/ . As you can see, it is a clear shot of no. 6... And there is no sight of any guesthouse there

Guys, what do you think of it? The photo is from April 2011, the only, enthusiastic review of the hostel comes from June. Could it be that this guesthouse is so new, that they didn't manage to put a webpage of it yet, and dight now I'm writing nonsense?
Or maybe it's some sort of scam?
Does anybody know if there is some Spanish yellow-pages-esque thingy where I can search if any entrepreneur is registered under fore aforementioned address?

The View of the CBD from the Train station , sadly this view will blocked by a Massive Redevelopment project and New Train station. It will be "Grand Central" sized Station and the surrounding Developments will eat up all the open parkings lots left in WP. Replaced with 3 garages...

I can only tell you that I was in a hostel in Barcelona in May and from the street you couldn't tell there was a hostel in this building. There was just a normal door, but no sign or anything indicating a hostel. We also had to call someone before checking in because you couldn't enter the door without a key.

To be sure I would ask in the spanish forum though if someone knows this place.

Our gift to Romania:


http://www.rtvslo.si/okolje/srecko-na-poti-v-program-za-mlade-medvede-v-romunijo/260955

We're so ridiculous. Bear is autochthonous in Slovenia, and we don't know what to do with a bear cub that its mother abandoned. It was even supposed to go to the Netherlands, which doesn't have autochthonous bears at all, but has an appropriate place for them anyway. No wonder the little bear was kidnapped.

You mean like this one in the city center of Braşov?



Searching for food, a bear female and its cub got into a building until the second floor (!) and then tried to break a window to get out. Rangers were forced to use tranquilizers to remove the bear from the city and return it into a bear sanctuary.
