They do. I've seen some Great Wall cars around. There's a huge retailer just besides the A4 around Bergamo.

I meant it generally in case of all forbidden cars. There were some analyses in newspaper related to Indian brand Tata. But I have just realized those cars are being sold here as well. Maybe it was concerned to model Tata Nano

This is amazing to me:
Migration track map of the Lesser spoted eagle called Arnold :-)
http://spravatanap.sk/web/index.php/...0-lety-arnolda.

The eagle was nesting in Slovak Tatra national park until he left on the journey to Africa on September 26th. Fortunately, today he made it through Syria and currently is in Lebanon.

It is really wonderful and amazing how he took the right course through Bosporus at the beginning (since Eagles don't like flying over sea) without wandering at coast. Average daily distance is 300 km.

Have a nice vacation Arnie

A question about international law: what happens if one wants to enter a country that doesn't recognize his\her own country? Is his\her passport rejected? For example a Kosovan who go to Serbia, Romania or Spain, a Taiwanese in China or an Abkhasian in most of the world.

Slovakia doesn't recognize Kosovo, but recognize it's passports (same goes for Romania). Taiwanese can visit Serbia although it doesn't recognize it. Visa will be issued on a separate piece of paper.

Arrived at the hotel not long ago. Full day yesterday, today - extra plus awesome weather. Visited almost only islands. Tomorrow I'm thinking of a sidetrip for the first part of the day, but I'm not sure yet where. Thursday, also sidetrip somewhere.

Great vacation this far, Venice is amazing!

Maybe he/she can get some temporal official documents. I heard, that if Kosovan wants to go to Serbia with his/her car, he/she has to change the licence plates from Kosovan to temporal Serbian since Kosovan are not recognized and police may consider his/her car as not alowed to be driven in traffic. But have no clue what is practice.

This is true, but serious bllsh't. Does not it mean that Slovakia de facto recognizes Kosovo? Slovaks obviously like Serbs and this is just the results of the every government policy: they know, that EU would be like if we recognize Kosovo, and due to very good reputation Serbs (and other ex-Yugoslav countries) in Slovakia has (have) they know, people will be like if we do not recognize Kosovo sooner than Serbia do. Colleagues in EU are important, but people here in Slovakia are more important since of right of vote
