One more last shot of the pre match warm up. Was too busy watching the match that I didn't take any shot when the match was happening.

The Polish team having their warm up before the start of the match. It was still about an hour before match time, that's why the stands are still empty.

In a line

People lining up in a queue on the right so that those who want to walk ahead can do so on the left.

Sad to say, this is something that is rarely seen in Singapore. We have signs telling people to keep to the left but they just occupy both sides and those wishing to pass in a hurry are never able to do so.

How is it in your own city/country? Do people give way?

Wide Load is here!

Here you can see the curve where the long truck had difficulty making the turn.

Wide Load

This red van was accompanying a truck that was wide and long. The truck had some difficulty making the turn. So the driver from the red van had to get out and guide the truck in the turning. Find out how long the truck is in tomorrow's blog.
Notice the sign on the red van: 'Leveä Kuljetus' meaning Wide Transportation.
