It was just a photo report from an online newspaper about the christmas tree for Prague. I liked the picture and thought about this thread right away.

The how questlion is about the lens they used. I guess some sort of fish eye clone.

I guess he never saw one before. In Milan and surrounds is not common but neither rare such SUV. Infiniti cars yes, I think I have never seen one with european plate. The only car I saw was this in Prague, but it has plate from Connecticut

Strange they are not common... lot's of Infiniti SUVs in Bulgaria... maybe it some kind of eastern european snobbery - people with money try to demonstrate they are different and buy expensive and rarely seen cars... as result these cars become not so rare

P.S. A quick checking on one of the Bulgarian second hand car selling internet sites shows there are 34 Infiniti SUV for sale at the moment here, most of them with Bulgarian licence plates.

Never seen one before, they're common in Eastern Europe I think though, like in Bulgaria such as Chilio says. Infiniti is not well known in the UK, although apparently they have 6 dealerships in the UK. In Europe they have dealerships in:

Austria
Belgium
Bulgaria
Croatia
Czech Republic
France
Germany
Greece
Hungary
Israel (well I guess its pretty much a European country despite geography)
Italy
Luxembourg
Netherlands
Poland
Romania
Russia
Spain
Turkey
Ukraine
UK

Naypayidaw, Myanmar (Bruma)

Nice shot, I think.

I like wide roads.

Interestingly, the straight section of this road is long enough to accomodate large airplanes (over 3.5 km runway). However, the lighting makes it too narrow to accomodate a 747 but a jet fighter could land or take off there. The road is about 60 meters wide.
