My few angry points about that life in L´Aquila can sometime be too foreign and leaving Italy is not a bad thing. Or, at least, why was the life in Italy sometime too foreign for me.
First part of packing done, nearly ready to go. Feelings? No hard feelings. I am not a big fan of long lists but read here why ..So, from a very critical point of view, what else, besides Math, did my last 2 years in Italy teach me (or skip direcly down under the video):
- That Italian university can be better organised than a German one (and both can start 15 minutes later)
- Even if you study applied mathematics, the theses can be your first mathematical application you do
- There is a messier country in Europe than Slovakia
- Myths about Italian mafia are true
can beis more expensive than Germany
- Limoncello is as horribly sweet as everyone says
- Italians don’t work from 2pm – 4pm and in august, they barely work at all
- Hungarians are actually not those with the funniest English accent
- They do get rid of pets when going for a holiday and after that they do buy a new one
- I understood the hidden true behind this video
Why leaving Italy is sometimes not a bad thing
- Everything is happening domani. But you never know which domani.
- 95% of people are disobeying the rules but that moment when you actually need them to disobey them, they change their mind to have a German day.
- Until something is actually happening you don’t know if it will happen.
- It is a expensive country.
- Food is great. But, honestly, there is an Italian restaurant in every European city and tomatoes grow everywhere. If you shop in Lidl or Carrefour (have I mentioned the prices here?), the only difference is higher price.
- Everything can change last minute.
- They mostly don’t separate waste and muchly waste the water.
- If the bus doesn’t come, it doesn’t come. No problem.
- Drama queens all around could be an exotic experience for a while. But if you can’t even go for a morning dog walk without hearing 3 arguments to start your day, you rather get up an hour earlier (or two hours later).
- They don’t use indicators when driving. They know where they are going and the others shouldn’t care.
- I still love Germany and all my Hungarian friends!
- I do believe Italy is an amazing country and there is definitely a big piece of true behind the ‘bella italia‘ .. I have just spent too much time here
- And I know that one day, these days will be called the good old times and I will write an article about why I adore Italy and L’Aquila
