Low-flying cats appear over Moscow

Last night in Moscow (according to this source) the whole bunch of cats was lifted into the air from the roof of a building, by a very strong gust of wind. According to eye-witnesses, the cats were blown at a low altitude accompanied by frenzied meowing...

According to the source's calculation, the wind speeds necessary to carry a 3kg cat (with the 10-15 degrees lift-off angle) will have to be at least 35 meters per second. Moscow storm warning yesterday mentioned winds of 20 meters per second. Here is an unrelated photo, that might illustrate this occasion:

Russian (awkward) off-road vehicle

SKU model - The design of this machine could be better, as it consists of two parts connected by flimsy transmission. At first it looks impressive, but then the connection snaps - see the last photo.

About the mystery picture:

I think it was taken in the Republic of San Marino, a small independent state in the middle of the Italian Republic. It's on its eastern medieval ramparts, facing a sheer (and very high) cliff to the right.

Yes, I confirm.
This is a famous "passeggiata delle streghe" (witchs' promenade).

The Urban Surprise picture was taken in Venice. It is an (I think temporary) art object in front of one of the city's many museums located at the Canal Grande.
