Looks as if blind drivers also exist in Belgium. And judging by what looks like rust marks on the tarmac, also town councils that are slow to maintain.
Belgium's are apparently the worst drivers per accident statistics in the EU. No car of any age does not have some damage, including mine. It just happens. :)
They do not normally have stop signs at uncontrolled intersections. No need to stop, except if someone is approaching from the right.

Is remembering to slow down and check for traffic from the right maybe the problem? :imaposer:

Interesting photographs, enjoy looking at them. Also impressed with your diligent site-seeing and travels; I really need to up my home-tourist game.

Can one get into this structure? Is it accessible on the inside? I have always wondered.
Are some of those pictures above taken inside it? Or from atop?

They have a lift in the middle which goes up to the middle ball. Escalators service the lower balls. Very impressive structure. Very well attended to - lots of tourists.

Not too many swimming. A bit cold perhaps?

Personally I prefer swimming in cold water. I find it healthier and far more invigorating.  People are also far less likely to urinate or copulate in cold water seas.

Cold to a point - Cape Town is very cold.
