And sometimes in Spain is very usual that little villages will have part of the name according to main town in the area (other times about the name of the river, valley, etc...)

In the southern Aragon there are some villages that refers to the small village of Linares, other to Rubielos and finally to Mora.


And... Rubielos refers to Mora and conversely. Consequently... we have "Mora de Rubielos" and "Rubielos de Mora".
Nevertheless, if you only say Mora or Rubielos people will understand you are referring to the village with the word in the first position


they are only 12 km between both towns.
https://maps.google.es/maps?saddr=mo...=h&mra=ls&z=12


If someone wants to make tourism... Mora de Rubielos is nice...




but in my humble opinion, Rubielos de Mora is one of the mos beautiful towns in my region.

This is its town hall

Also in Italy, this is used to avoid ononimies.

On the same sign (I put their full names): Algimia de Alfara and Alfara de la Baronía, formerly Alfara de Algimia. It was a loop, broken by the inhabitants of Alfara . But there is still Mora de Rubielos and Rubielos de Mora (As alserrod pointed out), and in Salamanca province there is Palencia de Negrillla and Negrilla de Palencia. What is even funnier is that Palencia is another province.

Anyway, this is not the country, (OBVIOUSLY). You write the country as Brazília ("long" i) but still pretty funny

Apparently it's a mistake and it's called Brazília as well.

Eastern Europeans really don't like gypsies at all. I suppose they're just more honest about their opinions than Western Europeans

Since EE borders opened also here in the west they cause a lot of troubles.
And our controversial political correctness doesn't help to fight crime because every 'human must have the same right doesn't matter if he steals, rapes or kills.'
