Brilliant pics
Anyway, I am lil bit surprised cause there isn't any POLISH city! You were in Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary even Romania, but you forgot about Poland.
I sincerely recommend you cities such as Wroclaw, Krakow, Gdansk and of course Warsaw - the capital.

Greetings

Awesome thread schmidt

I especially liked the mixture. So those are all the cities you visited so far, or are there even more?


Btw, those aren't 81 cities as you've shown some (such as Bern) more than once
Schummler!

Nöö! There are 81 cities in this thread, try checking again, maybe some problem occurred to your browser.

Actually there are some more here in the State, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Ciudad del Este, but I I don't have any pics of those cities. There's also Rancagua (Chile) and Recife, which I forgot to add to the thread.

That depends on where I'm going at the end of the year. Still choosing between Australia and Spain+BeNeLux.

I swear, there were cities that appeared twice. Ja.


PS: You should go for another Eurotrip, exploring the South.

Wohin eigentlich?

In 2008 I was gonna go to Greece, but my friend had to cancel the trip and I wasn't in the mood of going to the beaches all by myself.

I'd like to explore the Iberian peninsula a bit more - Granada, Oporto, Seville... I'm not a big fan of Italy!

Not that German anymore. Of course most people have German ancestry, but there's also a significant population of Portuguese and Italian decendants. There's not much German influence in the architecture anymore and most of what we have is in the city centre and some fachwerk (dunno in English) houses in the suburbs.

It's not rare to see people with German surnames (look at mine), but at the same time, most of the people don't speak German anymore. Actually only older generations speak it. You'll only find significant groups of people speaking German in the suburbs or in the surrounding cities (which are much smaller - BNU has 300,000 inabitants and our biggest neighbour has 50,000).

Many people also think that speaking German is a bad thing, a colono's (settler in Portuguese, but in reality that word means that such people are ignorant and work in rural areas) thing and younger generations are more interested in learning English than German - mainly for the reason I said above, but also because English is much easier for someone who speaks Portuguese.

Also, the city went through a degermanization process in the 40's during the WWII. Brazil, who was originally an ally of Germany, declared war on Germany and everything related to Germany (including the language) was banned in Brazil. Back then Blumenau was a mainly German-speaking city (my dad was raised in German), but German could not be spoken on the streets, otherwise you'd go to jail. My grandparents got married in a cinema in an unofficial German ceremony. Companies like my family's (Schrader) had to have their names changed (ours was renamed to Cia. Comercial Coelho) and there was a lot of repression on the streets.

So well, as you can see, it forcedly became more Portuguese and less German during the time!
