Sweden is cooling down, my fever is not.
And the only thunder we've had here is in the form of my headache.

Re: Guess The Language!!!

My knowledge of languages is not the greatest, so I have no clue what to guess. But I can always make some observations: it appears to me that in most words, front and back vowels do not co-occur.

Yeah, it's my favourite among the World's airports (not that I've been to that many really) …
I really liked the airfoil roof with mobiles, and the eternally long boarding concourse … But now I'm starting to sound like an airport geek, which I hope I won't become anytime soon.

Yes, that was my main source of information. But it, too, could contain erroneous data, I guess. (?)
