Wish it was not EU and Europe. Istanbul has a great skyline.

From old city to new business district, 5-10 kms of skyline full of palaces, mosques, old bazaars, more than 10 skyscrapers including the tallest of Europe like Sapphire Trumph or Diamond. + over the bosphoros + 2 bridges of length 1.5 km.

You should visit that city.

Are you sure ???

Well, these are our trains :







Here is that I call a "train" :

Our last world speed record (2007): 574.8 km/h (357.2 mph)




PS: Be careful, in France, we are very, very sensitive about our trains .

When you are living in R'dam for over 35 years, it's hard to write German for me.
I can speak German almost fluently, but when I was a baby, my parents didn’t teach me writing it. So that’s why a wrote Spastie instead of Spassti.
