I still wonder why was the particular dish named after the certain city or country, especially if the original citizens of the certain city or country have no clue about it
In many parts of the world, spaghetti with "ragů" (minced meat) are called "spaghetti alla bolognese", although in Bologna nobody called them in that way. Instead, in Bologna, they make "tagliatelle alla bolognese", that are "tagliatelle" (a type of pasta wider than spaghetti) with ragů.
In Italy, pizza with sliced hot dogs is called "pizza viennese" (from Vienna).

i am starting to hate them since they have given permission to too many persons to change the maps on their own, so there are unbuilt roads drawn

Meanwhile in Rome:

Two policemen fell asleep during work and when they got up the speed camera had been stolen.

Unbuilt roads are visible only in satellite mode, try using map mode.

Ok, then I must say I find it pretty weird that river Ljubljanica is in (old) Italian called "Length" (Lunghezza).

Oh, that's not good. I've been assuming that the information was at least accurate (possibly out of date in places but accurate when it was posted....)

Are the Bolognese aware of this?

I'm trying to find a cheap way to send some luggage from NL back to Italy. I have two heavy bags, trains are expensive and carrying them on the plane is not that cheap too.

Exact pick-up date is very important, delivery time is not really relevant (I would say max 7 days).

Do you have any advice? At this point I would expect Road_UK showing up at my door...


At the moment the most interesting deal is to carry everything with Transavia, €61 flight + €75 for 50 kg of stuff (problem is: I'm not sure I'm within 50 kg total).

There is this site: https://www.ecoparcel.eu/
Which gives an estimate around €50-60 for the whole thing, but the reviews are split between "Perfect" and "It's a full scam". If they don't pick up my stuff on the right date, I'm in big trouble...

If there is a bus connection you coud try that one. Some companies are even willing to deliver the luggage. Or you could try carpooling with someone.

I wanted to say bus connection too. But I'm not sure he will get cheaper then what he wrote by plane. For example, we receive/send packages from/to Romania by Atlassib, but a 20kg package costs 20€ and you are not allowed to have heavier ones then 20kg.

I know that Christian Ortodox celebrate Christmas on 7th January, but is 25th December really an ordinary workday in Serbia and other Ortodox countries?

I broke the 200k line recently too, I hope it will last for another 200k.

It is, only those who celebrate Christmas on that day (Hungarians, Croats, Romanians, Slovaks...) have right not to come to work.

The car I drive has done so only 3.5 times. And it's 15 years old.

BTW, if I find a Paternoster lift/elevator I'll do a round trip in it .

So do you make an ethnic\religious census to give different rights according to the religion? In other countries that would be politically unacceptable.
