Great to see some pictures from the Faroe Islands! Looks like a beautiful place, so thanks a lot, but maybe you should show the actual pictures in this thread instead of just clickable thumbnails. The pictures are not that large.

^so where do you live now if I may ask - your location field don't say..

I can see you use Imageshack - they should give you a list of links after you have uploaded your picture - pick the link in the bottum and insert it into a "picture" field in this forum ( click the picture icon above the posting field next to the qoute bottum..

An alternative cold be to use www.tinypic.com - that's what I use - it works the same way, but they provide you with a link where the Image tags are already inserted and you can copy the link by just clicking on it once - a GREAT time saver...

Bump. Anyone got those figures or knows where to get them?
Maybe this data will be useful:

GDP (PPP) 2008 estimate

- Total $1.642 billion
- Per capita $33,700

GDP (nominal) 2008 estimate

- Total $2.45 billion
- Per capita $50,300.

Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faroe_Islands. This data may not be precise or correct, however there are no links to the sources provided to check it. Hope, you can find this data in a more reliable source (-s).
