That's how I recently saw they had a seemingly mad collection of Art Nouveau buildings. Pictures of that in a report eventually gave me a good feeling about it.
^it's soviet past certainly shows, but the older parts have some really nice houses and areas that have been restored well..

Yes as I mention in the other thread the primary role was to secure the peace in the post invasion transition period.. mostly be preventive actions - but also as on call "problem solving by helicopter"..

There were also some interesting diplomatic things ( lots of clans in Iraq who were busy dividing power in the wake of the regime's fall with some occational fighting involved when yelling didn't cut it ) and some other stuff I still don't think I can elaborate on..

Dude, you just honored Paris in one single shot. I hope it wouldn't be ungrateful to you... Beware of those nasty selfish Parisians, tho. God, I'm one of them, so I can tell.

Just came back from a great trip to the island of Rømø last night ( with a brief visit to the old Jutlandish city of Ribe and with a short drive down into Northern Germany.. )

I'll make a photothread later, but here's a few mood shots until then:


Rømø - Beach


Rømø - Heath


Rømø - Woods


Ribe - Old Town


Sorry it's all Denmark in this post.. I'll make it up to you another time with a Denmark-free post

My gf and I spend the weekend touring the eastern part of the island we live on ( Zealand ) - here's a few photos from today and yesterday





Gjorslev Castle - oldest part ( the tower ) dates back to 1396


Stevns Klint - a recent entry to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites due to it's cliffs that exposes layers from the last 72 million years - it offers one of, if not THE best, place to observe the layer from the Chicxulub meteorite that 65 million years ago killed off most of the dinosaurs
