The spot the light is concentrated on is actually black, [as seen in this picture.](http://blog.2modern.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/6a00d834522c5069e20120a8aef8bd970b-pi.jpg) That black spot is a reciever which transfers the energy from the light to saturated steam which in turn drives a generator.
Whenever I see a picture of fancy infrastructure in Greece, I can’t help but wonder if it helped push Greece into its current situation.
Potato jokes aside Latvia is a fascinating country, and lots of fun! I was stunned by not only the Art Nouveau buildings but also the beautiful old wooden buildings that are now slowly disintegrating back into the soil. Check out the [Belgian Embassy.](https://maps.google.ca/maps?q=belgian+embassy+riga&ll=56.95959,24.108086&spn=0.002033,0.005552&hq=belgian+embassy&hnear=Riga,+Latvia&t=h&z=18&layer=c&cbll=56.959499,24.107899&panoid=Ag8VJu0yb1OhfifmWjgD2A&cbp=12,165.48,,0,-25.74)
Spaghetti Junctions usually are chaotic looking. This one has a lot going on but there’s clearly an order and symmetry to it. Compare that to where the [5, 101, 10 and 60 meet](http://maps.google.com/?ll=34.029909,-118.215353&spn=0.003672,0.003857&t=k&z=18) with all its chaos. Or look at the [original Spaghetti Junction](http://www.webbaviation.co.uk/gallery/d/36718-3/spaghettijunction-cb37243.jpg)
It’s really not that big of a cantilever. Similar to corbelled brick http://www.homeownersnetwork.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/R1003-brick-corbelling.jpg The focal length of the camera lens makes it more extreme than it really is. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/7/78/Hanoi_Museum_02.JPG
It depends. I’ve seen some terrible construction that could qualify as a ruin right off the bat. It frequently has Donald Trump’s name on it. Fallingwater was a challenging structure to build and maintain, however it has been cared for and restored intensively, so
We have a similar one in Munich, with colored sticks, and it does just the same when you’re going by at more than walking speed because they start obscuring each other. It looks awesome.
Lahore, Pakistan Here’s a link: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1693911 It’s hilarious because the developer is known to make replicas of famous landmarks around the world such as Trafalgar Square, Statue of liberty and Eiffel Tower but this particular one caught me by surprise.
Great! I’ll be sure to not only upvote but save the ones I like the most!
Not sure the climate and human factors of Taiwan and Iran are anything alike. One is beside the largest country in the world, going through its industrial revolution. And not to mention Taiwan is incredibly dense. Oh, and it’s tropical. Iran does not have
Apparently he started making it when I was two. It’s been here almost my whole life and I had no idea. Did you know about the castle on the plateau?
[Still here.](https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/b/ba/Zuerich_Oerlikon_Zum_Bauhof_6177977.JPG/576px-Zuerich_Oerlikon_Zum_Bauhof_6177977.JPG) And still in pretty good condition, it seems.
I spent the first 23 years of my life in Newfoundland, yet experienced so little of it. Now I make it a point to visit new places every time I go home to visit. Adding Fogo to the list.
The thing is, we don’t do public transit well. While most of those cities have decent networks they are almost universally slow, underfunded, underbuilt, and under maintained. Even New York, which is probably one of the best, is decades behind where it should be
No, these were man made. That region of India is one of the wettest on the planet, so the local villagers came up with this technique to span the rivers that prevents the intense floods from washing an artificial bridge away. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Living_root_bridges
Took them almost 20 years to build a new station. It replaces the old train station. It provides a exchange to: trolleybuses, local buses, local trains, national trains and international trains (ICE).

I visited this place once. The glass wall is closer to giant cylinders. I was told the There were random cylinders of different colors and when the sun it’s them right they project onto the ground. Also during shows there are lights in the
If someone said to me “If you can guess whose house this is I’ll give you a million billion moneys”, I’d never have guessed. Nice house though. Edit: I sent this picture to my wife and asked her whose house it was. First she
Related to this, I lived in China for two years and I noticed then that a lot of contemporary buildings are coated in ceramic tiles. Is this part of a larger architectural tradition?

That’s the marine layer rolling in from the Ocean, and it seems to happen whenever it likes. Mostly morning and evenings, but not EVERY morning and evening.
I don’t know, 1857 was a bit late for canals. Railways were already very established, especially in the UK. I live close to Göta Canal, which was built through Sweden in the early 19th century as a connection between the western and eastern parts
I was wondering exactly how it works too, so I looked it up. The pedestrian bridge is a high arch in order to give clearance for canal traffic and to provide a lookout point; it’s lined up with the streets on either side so
