They are autochtons also in some hilly and mountanious areas of Northern Italy and sometimes cause serious accidents.

I got this RT on my Twitter feed



Apparently, on the Northern Eastern cities of US there is this widespread illegal practice of residents shoveling snow from street parking spaces, and then "claiming" the spaces as theirs as long as there is still snow around!

So I hear. Never seen it. (But I can understand their point of view. In neighborhoods where parking's hard to come by in normal conditions, if you've spent time and effort extricating your car from a foot of snow, it'd be nice to have a place to park when you come back.)

One of my neighbours tried to be a clever so & so and park in my parking bay directly outside my front door after I'd cleared it of snow a few years ago. They've not parked anywhere near me since.

In my experience before starting to learn it, Romanian could be easy or hard to understand, depending on the context:
- Formal, written Romanian (e.g. a newspaper article) is kinda easy to understand. You surely get the general sense and some of the details.
- Spoken Romanian is hard to understand, and you usually only get a few words. Probably a bit more, if the other person speaks slowly.

As far as the grammar is concerned, Romanian grammar is very similar but a bit simpler than the Italian one. Some Romanian grammatical forms exist identical in Italian too, but they're not accepted or considered uneducated. But every Italian has heard them, so this makes it easy for me to learn Romanian (and not the other way around )

I'm surely helped a lot by having studied Latin in high school, and knowing and speaking Venetian language too.

These are, in my opinion, some Latin languages ranked from the easiest to the hardest to understand for an Italian.

Catalan > Spanish > Portuguese > Occitan > French > Romanian
