Travels / / April 06, 2016
sunny, warm, welcoming birthplace Chipollino - can you not love it?She is beautiful, famous for its monuments and magnificent architecture, famous for its fantastic Closeouts and excellent Mediterranean cuisine - really and here lie some pitfalls?However, the initial euphoria subsides, tearing eyes with pink sunglasses and veil exaggerated enthusiasm.And what do we see?
think the worst bureaucracy than in Russia - does not exist?You are wrong!Our officials are at least aware that sin, and the Italians seem to revel in the paperwork.In addition, the rulers of human destinies themselves are bad, what kind of authority vested by certain powers.And as a result - delay the full information and collapse.
swears on what light is Moscow traffic jams, road travel and irregular public transport?Visit the Italian subway may help to assess what he saw there the splendor of our underground.Dirty floors, bad lighting, and countless graffiti on the windows more like a decorationto the base horror movie than a convenient means of transportation.Long waited for a trolley in a cold Novosibirsk?And how do you a week-long general strike of drivers?They are striking - and let the whole world wait.
Have you come out in the winter on the street to warm up ...?But the Italian Mediterranean residents regularly warmer in the winter sunshine than in cold houses.Central heating is not here, and drive the heater in his absence - contrary to the rules of the conservation budget.That's why have to go back to the apartment and catch a cold, sunny days to ventilate the rooms - cold, coupled with the humidity much comfort is not added.
4. Timetable stores
great, exciting, fascinating shopping is strictly regulated.Accustomed to kill an evening, walking to the shops?Nothing will come of it: trade workers - family people, and their evenings prefer to spend at home, in the circle of noisy Italian family.Therefore, a spoiled tourist nightlife is likely to "kiss lock" on the door of the store in the 6-7 pm.
There are patriots, and there are xenophobes.Second - it's about them, about the Italians, and the xenophobia manifested in the most unexpected areas.For example - in art.You only think that there is a Russian opera, Mozart - is light and airy, and Wagner - turns the soul.You will definitely admire Verdi and Puccini, however, every Italian will explain why only their composers - the real and the Italian singing school - the only one.They are not difficult to ruin tour, offended that the "fortissimo" in the aria seemed to them insufficiently passionate and loud.And what - they've already got ready to cry favorite moment.
6. «Uh, no, no need to rush»
largest cities of Russia exhausting its rate?Well - Live a couple of weeks in the rhythm slow-motion.Italians say quickly, but in the rest prefer not to hurry.In particular, and in customer service - in banks, shops, restaurants.Where are you in a hurry?Why, you have the same life ahead.
7. Intermission in theaters
you like to watch movies in the theater, so that nothing would distract from the story, and the tape would not be interrupted by annoying ads?We planned to enjoy a movie, completely plunged into the events occurring on the screen?Not a bit of it.Sitting in a movie theater and a half - two hours - this is not for the Italians.So get ready in advance that the film will be interrupted at the most interesting moment.
Emotions - a good thing when they are positive.But his bad mood in Italy is usually expressed very expressive.And the reasons for dissatisfaction are vast.For example, - bad weather.
pizza, pasta, seafood and desserts are great.But arrogant nation will certainly begin to dictate when, how and what to eat.For example, breakfast is obliged to limit ourselves to a cup of cappuccino and a croissant, and dinner before seven o'clock in the evening will not work.Is that the house where no one will teach you for a breach of etiquette.
What at first may seem sweet, direct and so Italian - Talk about great Italian music and food at risk to get bored very soon.After all, there are plenty of others in the world.In the world - yes, but not in Italy.
