Even Mex-Am's I know would have to agree on the number of cars thing.

Easy way to tell an immigrant home.

Many years ago, the Best Picture of 1999, "American Beauty", telegraphed the message of Happier Abroad to the world.

Beware of long term engagements with AWs, you may find yourself in a coffin.

BTW, despite settling down with an AW, myself, the warning is still in effect.

You really like these types of girls? I guess that's how true Caucasian girls may still look like in rural parts of the -stans. Bad for you they might change their appearance when they turn 16...
Well although these are not outrageously hot I was trying more to show the "type" i meant, a bit rounder face, cheek dimples, really pale but blush skin, with a bit thicker brows and large eyes. Again i cant' find pics of some like those i saw in Germany.
Also I know i included very young ones but that was just to show the type, don't get me wrong I wasn't going for age (this time :mrgreen:).

Nah, Germany or Sweden becoming Islamicised by Turks or Somalis is a savage exaggeration. The Franco-German region has always been a bastion of white Christianity since Charlemagne and these people are still getting used to multiculturality. Just like the Latinos in the US southern states, more than Allah or Dios can the hard law of demographics, child bearing and welfare riding... :)
I don't know, when i went to frankfurt we went out with my cousin at night and it was only turkish people promenading. Nothing against them but if i go to Germany I'd want to see mostly Germans. Likewise if I go to turkey I wouldn't want to see many Germans.
Good point about the child-bearing.

LOL don't get yourself (or your cousin) deceived by appearances. If you stroll around Milan city centre at night, you will only find young Filipinos and Eastern European looking guys. Some Indians as well. The "natives" usually have house parties or discos or venues to spend their nights in. They will also usually move by car so they will be invisible to passer byes. The first or second generation migrants are usually those with the least money and without a disposable car, and won't find anything better than loiter about in the more central streets.

A typical pattern you see almost everywhere in large European cities. Nothing to raise an anthem to Allah for :)

PD is right.
This is very true and goes for Germans as well, they love their house parties as much as Italians.

I went to one about 2 months ago my roommate invited me to an all German birthday party. I was the only minority there :) We went to the nicest part of Berlin, the couple living there (one was the birthday girl) the guy a manager at Volkwagen corporate here in Berlin had a very nice and spacious modern luxury flat.

The party was amazing and it was my first real German party I had been invited too. There was about 20 cases (yes cases) of different kinds of beer, champagne and even a small mini bar for cocktails.

The food wasn't as good as an Italian party, the german birthday girl kept popping fish sticks and french fries into the oven and mini pizzas. She had some fresh food and tapas but that got gobbled up by the 50+ Germans they had crammed into their luxury flat.

When it came time to sing happy birthday I was shocked when they started singing it in English. I asked my roommate why they switched to English to sing happy birthday and apparently it's a cultural thing with the younger german generation to sing it in English.

After they were all done I made them sing it again in German. Which to my surprise they did.

I then was allowed to pick a few songs on the ipod with their DJ setup they had, if you ever want to see a German get passionate and start singing just put on "I want to break free" - by Queen

I cracked the German code in one night, lots of beer, playing queen, and singing happy birthday in English is the key to getting them to open up to you.

That's one of the things i like about germans. they have both the order, innovation, and cleanliness thing figured out but they also can party and be so friendly and humble.

Cleanliness hardly

My German roommate leaves beer bottles sporadically throughout the flat.
Which I end up picking up and rinsing out then placing into recycle bag.

Dishes in the sick with food still on them leaving them there for 3-4 days at a time.
Which I end up washing again and again.

I've cleaned the bathroom and the kitchen.
3 weeks in a row now with no help.

So there goes that "Germans are clean" stereotype, LÖL :)

I think the Germans won the cleanliness award because they were competing with the French...

C'mon I was talking infrastructure and outdoors. Not to take it to absurdum but think of the streets of naples, or this

But now that you mention, it's interesting that anglos/germans keep the streets and facades spotless but tend to be dirty indoors, while in the third world the streets are full of potholes/trash, but indoors people like to keep their home like a palace if they have the means.

From what I know about Germans the same goes for their personality. Out in public they are polite, reserved, shy, and overtly proper.

Then once indoors they bust out the cameras and start making some good old fashion German Scheiße porn.

They really are an interesting people!

Well respectfully I disagree.

if you go to Glendale California, you see 95% Armenians on the streets, except at the Americana Mall which has a regional draw. Schoolkids are 50% Filipino, 50% Armenian.

OFFICIALLY, Glendale is majority White. So where are all the Whites?

Noone knows.

Noone CARES, either.

My point:
For our purposes here at HA, the purpose of connecting and making a new life overseas, if all the good Lombards of Milano are tucked away safely in their homes, cocooning, then the city is INDEED majority immigrant -- for our purposes.

Spot on.

Mexican streets are full of potholes, with various signs of decay.
Inside the homes are immaculate.

Versus American suburbia: beautiful on the outside, sloppy teenagers and mayhem inside.

Queen is from the UK.

Germans love their 80's anglo music, they can't get enough of it.
And also Italian 80's POP music.

Very Very True...That was my anger towards Germany being a third world country. They have good roads and rails but the house they live is worse than third world countries. Its like living in a home run by an Autistic retarded person in his 40's.

Unfortunately, I have to go back again for women - work and get used to it :o :roll:

So what's it like in the Mediterranean? I'm hearing a lot of stuff about these areas, but not much about the workings of them. Ror instance: I was hearing from someone that the cops in Germany act a lot like the cops in America, but they don't go ape-shit crazy as often. What about things like that?
