I heard that now you can chew gum outside in Singapore, is that right? But I can understand banning gum. You can see so many blackish spots on the ground here, most likely caused by gum...

2-Windmills

Not much to be proud of huh? Nationally speaking, that is.
As far as my native region goes-there's a lot of good things around:
Hard working people, kindness (noaberschop), the Nedersaksisch-dialect, nature:woods, brooks and hills.
 
It's okay, Esca. After all, Gustave Eiffel was the engineer behind Bartholdi's design. He's the reason it could stand.

There is also a competition of who can drink cans of beer... And I love Mercedez..But one thing that I dont like about German it's Hittler....
And near my City there is a Holland descents village...And if u walk by the city U fell u're in Holland...Blond people, the architecture, the tulips, wooden shoes...In Holland u can buy marijuana at bars and homossexual marriage its allowed isnt?! Very nice country too!! 😌
