Hungary caused some concerns in Europe in the last months for its "authoritarian drift".
Does it have something to do with the reason he resigned?

I heard something that he plagiarized his Doctorarbeit...

I tested my car yesterday, for a few seconds drove 180kmh on the A9 Autobahn, but it felt a little scary so I went to a more comfortable 140-150 after.

No. It turned out that twenty years ago he cheated when got his PhD title (actually it was 'doctor univ.' title which is a rough equivalent of current PhDs).
Since the president was elected by the governmental party, called Fidesz, and many Fidesz-voters thought the presidens should resign, now Fidesz made a pressure on him to resign.

Understood. Something like the zu Guttenberg case in Germany...

I've been in Berlin several times, both before and after that crazy trip. My first visit was in 1985, when I was only allowed to visit the capital of GDR, and the last one three years ago.
I like that city. But I've never been in Pergamon Museum so I shall visit Berlin at least one more time :-)

With a strong Bulgarian lead - he copied most of his work from a Bulgarian scientist

Barcelona is the only coastal city in Europe with a full ring road. Others are further inland (such as Porto, Nantes, or Roma). Most European coastal cities do not have full ring roads (Den Haag, Dublin, København, Helsinki, Marseille, etc.)

By the way, today I made the reverse of what did Suburbanist: I had to go from the industrial estates North of Huesca to the hospital, which is located in the Southwest, on the exit to Zaragoza. But instead of driving through the center I decided to take the bypass. So today I went on E07 motorway from exit 362 to exit 357. I also went on the Northern bypass (N-240, future A-22).
