Rumble: An Un-natural Mix: German and Italian...

How does the joke go again? Heaven is where the police men are English, the lovers are Italian, the car makers are German, the cook is French..
And hell is... (ok, will not tell the 2nd part of the joke as I do not want to insult any nationalities...)

Still, you will agree with me that the combination of Italian and German (well... Austrian) in South Tyrol is rather un-natural. Italian always being associated with the frivolous, and German with strictness... Or maybe it is a natural match, as opposites often attract.

Whatever.. It makes their roadsigns a mess.. And it upsets the lady in my GPS, as she only knows the Italian names of the towns. :-)
