I like that bike path, though it doesn't look like countryside. All the plants out of the apartmensts look neat:

Thanks goodness I was born in a country that has at least some redeeming features. In the 80's there was a saying that "it's like winning on the lottery being born in Finland", and at least the French got furious about it. "What what, it's cold, terrible cuisine, those arrogant morons drinking vodka all day long".

It's really not like winning on the lottery, but at least the worst we have to deal with is this:


And our government, of course, but it will be dead in April.

Yeah this neighborhood looks nicer, but I'd say the ugly ones make up the majority of the view of the city.

The link isn't working.

Well we have some redeeming features, they just don't exist in the hideous cities, lol.
For instance, the mountains are pretty impressive and they made the Japanese jealous when they were colonizing us lol.

Actually I think they wouldn't look that bad if the pictures were taken on a sunny day.
