Okay, so it was the rainy season in Hong Kong, but 300mm per square mm is a bit too much. Then again, even with the rain, Hong Kong is awesome and now definitely one of my favorite places in the world.
It seems that this year the weather in the world is going into extremes again. Floodings in Asia and Europe, hurricanes in Asia and America, forest fires in Europe and Asia, not the usual winter in Australia, no real summers in Europe… is the world still okay?

This is one of the ceilings of the Stadshuset (city hall) of Stockholm in Sweden. This city hall is awesome, all the different rooms were built in different styles. So if you ever go to Stockholm, the city hall is the place to visit.

This is a typical snack/cake in Den Bosch (‘s-Hertogenbosch): Pretty much this is a chocolate layer filled with whipped cream. Yum.

Previously known as Luchthaven Zestienhoven, it was renamed Rotterdam Airport a few years ago. While Schiphol Airport (Amsterdam) is one of the largest airports in Europe, Rotterdam Airport only has 7 gates.
According to this article, Schiphol has 97 gates. More statistics were: Over 13 million passengers in 3 months (summer 2005), 16 million suitcases, travelling with 105 airlines. 22500 seats, 7300 baggage carts, 1325 toilets, 99 shops.

So, tonight is the last Wednesday Night Skate in Rotterdam this year, but I have other plans. And I have nothing else to post, so here’s a skate picture anyway.
