Orange and Yellow ? Are you sure that you are talking about NZ and not Nepal ? Hare-Krishna, hare-hare , do you play the tambourine ?
Grrrrr is all the above not obvious if you live in Italy ? Everything is a mess there, (except food), the way they play football, the driving, the politicians.
In Anglo-Saxon countries, any small corrupt act by a politician is picked up by the press, but in Italy the press is controlled by corruption !!! Contrast David Mellor with Berlosconi.

Hey i have just gained my first star , yay

No, some of the food is a mess too - I tried cow nerves the other day. But the rest of it makes me laugh, something I forgot how to do in NZ. I hate football so their wrong playing doesn't affect me, the driving is a far sight better than in NZ, but I agree it's an adventure everyday. The politicians are indeed corrupt. Oh well. The really big thing i notice about life in Italy is that I sometimes get a bit irritated by things but find I'm laughing about them two minutes later whereas in NZ I would get mightily f£@&*d off and be seething for at least a month, banging my head against anything hard and screaming like a banshee.

It happens all the time in NZ doesn't it, the Prime Minister, who controlls most of the media, bending the law at will (NOT). with contacts with the Mafia, large parts of the South of the country lawless, police controlled by the mafia, multiple attacks on immigrants, kidnapping. Ex-King of Italy recently was found to been involved in racketeering and importing prostitutes. There is Rust everywhere, democracy is nothing but a mere sham in Italy, half of legitimate business has links to organized crime, it is a covenient way of laundering money for them. You just try opening opening an Italian food company in Italywhen you are a foreigner and you will soon get a visit from a couple of hoods with violin cases, and they are not musicians !

I once (it was enough ) went to Palermo, Scicily, which is the birthplace of La Cosa Nostra (da mob).

I saw hundreds and I mean hundreds of dead people. Old and young, babies even. It was awful

To find out why highlight below with your cursor

They had all been mummified. I dont know what I was expecting at a Catacomb, it was a tourist attraction. :scared:
