Of course there were some very European touches, like the long stretch of cobble road leading out of one town almost to the next (it was interrupted by a short stretch of asphalt), it was a tight road of small cobbles, which just seem so difficult to maintain but here it went for kilometers with only farm fields to appreciate it.

We could see several cities and towns from the highway and very noticeable were large apartment complexes painted in a variety of colors.
