Yup, I've been to Fuengirola in 1994. We hired a car there and visited almost all of Andalusia. And I remember it was in August so it was hot as hell lol.

euhm euhm................ i think its a river (de Leie), cause we ve got two major rivers (Leie & Schelde, do not know the English names) that come together in Ghent, but we ve got quite a few channels as well :o

i must say: I loved the ramp when i visited Oslo... from pictures one can not truly see how steep it actually is :eek: must be terrifying for those ski jumpers ;)

Thank you Mitch. It's a typical idealised socialistic town (no joke, in the early stages of development it was presented as a role model "new society" city).

Your pictures are beautiful - is that a lake or a bay?
