    Having relatives from Drama, I guarantee you that you will be amazed from her natural and historical monuments and, of course, from Saint Barbara's park!

    I would rather have a memory that is fair but unfinished than one that goes on to a grievous end.

    ok lets see if you can figure out this:

    Could you please post a bigger picture? Looks like a fountain, but it's just too tiny.

    At first I thought it was Germany, but I´m 90% sure it's Somerset, Great Britain.

    The whole thing screams Portugal or Spain, but that flags seems South American.

    Anyway, Figueira da Foz, Portugal? I just don't know of any battles there... if I'm not mistaken the British joined the Portuguese for the Napoleonic invasion there though.

    It's in Europe, but not in Portugal or Spain.
