Below are some pictures of China's G312 through the Pamirs. This is the Karakoram Highway from Kashgar in China to Pakistan. Unfortunately I did not make the whole trip down there, as the initial 200 kms or so suggest a great ride ...

Great countryside of the Alps. And the border of the bilingual area of Südtirol. The springs of Drava and Piave are located quite close but "Rio Grande", it sounds really weird....

Rio means river in Venetian language. Maybe also in Friulian but I'm not sure.

I'm no Venetian, but "fiume" seems wrong.

All canals in Venice are called "rio". Maybe "rio" means canal, not river.

i thought that fiume is a small river like in serbo-croatian potok or in german bach and rio a real river like reka in serbo-croatian or fluss in german. question: do you know what is so special about the rio tagliamento?

No, "fiume" means river: Fiume Nilo (River Nile), Fiume Danubio (River Danube)... the equivalent to German "bach" in Italian is "torrente" or "ruscello".

"Rio" is considered archaic in Italian and not used any more. It survives in some dialects, though.
