I don't think a breakup of the Eurozone would be followed by a breakup of the EU. While some countries abandoning the Euro would be a dire effort in itself, going out of the EU would have much further implications, including the access to free markets in Europe, somethin the countries more "in danger" of abandoning the Euro desperately need.

I wanted to ask if all Slovenian Alps consist of lime or if there are also other rock formations on the peaks. I know most of Austrian Alps are lime, but somehow I do not like lime that much since it is not really a solid rock and looks less impressive then solid rock. Which areas are lime and which are with other rocks? What material has the Strzic peak and the area arround it, the eastern mountains and what do the west Slovenian mountains have?

Btw, I read quite interisting blog about Daniel Speer and his hikes in the High Tatra moutains. 400 years ago they thought that High Tatras are higher than Swiss or Austrian Alps.

All Slovenian Alps are from limestone and dolomites. Pohorje hills are from granites and tonalites. Forealps are from older limestones, dolomites, flyshes, slates and marls. Dinarides (southern and southwestern parts) are from younger limestones and flyshes.

So the Triglav area and the eastern Alps area are all limestone? Is it solid at all or are stones falling down?

Depends of local conditions. Some cliffs have very solid walls, some less, some are very brittle. However in general Triglav area is more solid than for example mountains of Hohe Tauern which are from granite.

And the stones that you can see on the bottom of the mountain, are they also milestone, are they stable when you touch them or are they like sand with a solid core so when you touch them your hand is white, since for sure there are some stones at the bottom of the peaks that are small.

There's also supposed to be a tiny bit of andesitic tuff and andesite.

Stone as a stone. Limestone stone doesn't crumble in the hands.

Skiing conditions are more than excellent with loads of snow in and outside pistes, totally different from last year. West and north Alps really got (and still get) a lot of snow, opposite from spring conditions in southern and eastern Alps. If you'll get nice weather then this will be excellent skiing.

Check also Les 2 Alpes for a day and their carving pistes under glacier when you're already there.

Accident in São Paulo countryside videotaped

Crash happens at 2:30. Apparently the white pickup driver is diabetic and wasn't feeling well. Instead of stopping, the bastard kept driving...

I'm not sure but researching I think it's on SP-225 near Piratininga, about 340km from São Paulo capital.

I had weird dreams tonight. Some Italians stopped and asked me how to get to the stadium (by car), but it was so complicated that I had to think so hard... that it woke me up.

I'm also afraid of people driving straight to my car...

Few years ago I was entering Szeged (H) and suddently there was a crash in front of me with a truck that hitted another car. I couldn't avoid it on the right or the left sides of the road, so I just had to break hard (I've never pressed the break pedal so hard in my entire life) and after that I reversed the car with the acceleration to the floor (+wheels screeching)... all of this with my mom in the car next to me Fortunately I avoided the crash and nobody was injured in the truck and the other car involved.
