Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Doh!... One too many "to be processed"...

Feels like it though... I think Italian time is akin to Caribbean time.

heh, italy approaches the efficiency of '60s india on a good day, closer to burundi most of the others...

and now we're in the season when 'le feste' is trotted out like the mantra it is, to excuse any and everything under the sun, which is undoubtedly the cause of so much that is 'ballsed-up' here, as peoples' brains turn to sticky goo at anything over 25 degrees, i find, unless at least theri toes are in some cool water.

no wonder they call italy the best-dressed third-world country ther is, lol!

are you planning to move to cool rational n. europe, or is that german study just for kicks?

Some comuni seem to have it together, some consolati as well, others, not so much...

I'm living in Berlin for the next year, and if I can handle the winter here we'll probably buy a place while it's still affordable...

Though having never explored much of the continent, who knows where we might like it... though southern Italy is too hot for me, despite my Sicilian blood, or mayhap because of it... I think, climatically speaking, the Canton of Ticino on Lake Lugano somewhere looks nice...

Any other Berliners out there?
