I'm pretty sure the whole Struma Motorway has been swallowed by the earthquake.

I am sure the Ljulin motorway has got many cracks and the Struma motorway has got no crack at all, while all other roads in Pernik area are broken and bridges have come down.

@Chilio: I've talked with my dad (who is in Bucharest now) and he said that he didn't feel anything last night (he was sleeping at the earthquake time). A Romanian blogger also said that he didn't feel anything, although he was awake at that time, but some people on facebook said that they felt it in Bucharest...

It depends on many factors: soil, height of building where you are, wooden or concrete floors...

It´s very Italian and Eastern-European to never let go, this is true. I believe it´s a catholic thing.
It's not really catholic thing. Sure, on the side of parents it is about letting go. But it doesnt really work like that for the children.

Its more a cultural thing. It has to do more with lifestyle, character of people, socio economic decissions etc. Its contrast between different levels of individualism in those societies and different values. And it is also quite a contrast between sort of traditional society and postmodern society.

Its not really black and white. There are advantages as well as disadvantages of having closer family relations.

Above that. At certain point most of the elderly need care of other people. Not everyone is dying happy in the middle of his active 85. Most people decay slowly. The alternative is euthanasie. The institutionalized care is nowhere really something you would long for.

That should not happen at such not-so-powerful quake, even if cooling towers are 50 years old.

Is this the house of an owner of a Greek restaurant? In Greek restaurants they usually break emty dishes on the floor and tables while dancing and playing traditional Greek music and dances... So owners of Greek restaurants will have plenty of such pieces of dishes, whit which to decorate the house

Capaci (Sicily, Italy), 20 years ago.
The judge Giovanni Falcone, his wife and three bodyguards were murdered with 500kg of plastic explosive placed under a tunnel digged on purpose under the A29 motorway near the junction of Capaci between Palermo city and its airport.
He was very active in the struggle against Sicilian mafia. His colleague Paolo Borsellino was also murdered together five bodiguards with a car bomb two month later.
In 1993 the infamous boss Salvatore Riina, that was the mind of those bomb attacks, was finally arrested after a car chase in Palermo centre. Other mafiosi reacted against the state with deadly bomb attacks in Milan, Rome and Florence killing random people.
