I like that Valette painting a lot, although in the background they appear to have erected a statue to a policeman stopping the traffic...


What was the first name of the fat bloke in Cheers who had his name shouted by the patrons whenever he entered the bar?

I`d have put money on him. Probably the only American sit com I ever watched.

At 120 km long, Cox's Bazar is probably the longest continuous sandy beach in the world. The average daytime temperature never drops below 28C or rises above 32C during the year but is not yet a major tourist destination. In which country is it located, the only country in the world that has both a larger population than England and a higher population density?

No, a bit further away than that. Singapore's entire coastline is not much more than 120 km I would think.
