I would say there is no main religion,or at least all the 4 religions are "main" religions.
35%-40% of the population are Roman Catholic&Albanian Orthodox(like me).
The rest is a mix of Islam 25% (Sunni) and Bektashians 35%(Mix of Paganism and Moderated Islam).
People are religious in Albania but people are not practicant(at least the Islamic side).People belive in God,but not in religion.A normal albanian family celebrates Easters,Bayrams,Christmas and all the religious celebrations.

Well I was talking in a general sense. And I know Aromanians are not very tall people. I take it from my distant relatives (my grand-grand-grandmother was about 150cm or a bit less :mrgreen: :lol: ). Also, the Romanian football team is not very tall.

Mamaliga is the national dish made of cornmeal. I think it should be associated with Moldova more than with Romania.

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_UEj6g_Ot7zE/SL6MpoZyv4I/AAAAAAAABK4/v0PaJRlRJv0/s400/%D0%BC%D0%B0%D0%BC%D0%B0%D0%BB%D1%8B%D0%B3%D0%B0-3.jpg

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_UEj6g_Ot7zE/SL6N-tbDyAI/AAAAAAAABLA/wQ3EuK9nYBI/s400/mamalyga.jpg

It's also wide spread in the Western Ukraine and here on the South :)
Though we add lard there sometimes, I like pure mamalyga without any additions.

lucian-crusher
30th July 2010, 15:24
Mamaliga = boiled corn flour with salt.
At the begining poor people in -ro where eating that instead of bread because it was cheaper. Now it's a delicatese and we usualy eat it with white cheese and sour.

It was not Spain who was fighting there. Actually the UK and Austria-Hungary lost against France to get the Spanish Monarchy ;)

ANd it's not the same case, come on. UK stole a land which was Spanish. Spain gave back to Morocco that land just keeping the two cities which were founded by us ;)

Yes something like 98% voted to remain British over joint-sovereignty. So total control by Spain is even less popular, about 0.5% of Gibraltar residents wish to be given to Spain. Spain claim the United Kingdom to be colonialists but we are only doing what the people want. As far as Im concerned, it is colonialistic if you change sovereignty of an area against the wishes of the people.

Why you mention Canary Islands??? :?
Canary Islands were always Spanish, never wanted independence and no countries are claiming sovereignty there :shock:
Also Morocco can't demand anything, cause they stole us Western Sahara in 1975 while we were too busy in transition to democracy that couldn't defend it. Sahara people were forced to move to refugee camps to Algeria, lost in the desert and they introduced Moroccan there. But even now, those people want independence and Morocco doesn't give them :evil:

But yeah, I don't want to argue with you either :mrgreen:

MyHeartIsYours
10th August 2010, 17:02
I mention Canary Islands coz they are next to Morocco so under your definition, that is colonialism too. ;)

But do you not see Pablo it is double standards! You say Morocco can't claim anything because it invaded Spanish Sahara (which as far as I know got independence from Spain before Morocco invaded) and yet I suppose you support Argentina's claim to the Falkland Islands which they invaded in 1982. I am not saying Spain is wrong to have the North African territories, I support it because that is what the people want, all I ask is that you look at Gibraltar in the same way. I don't expect you to support the British administration, just accept it, because that is what the people want :).

Cause Gibraltar is a colony. And as United Nations say all colonies should be descolonized.
Ceuta and Melilla are not colonies, United Nations don't reconized them as colonies.
UN said that UK and Spain, should starts conversations for the descolonization of Gibraltar.

I understand that Gibraltar is still a colony... something I want to be changed. But you can't tell me that Spain would prefer it if Gibraltar became a county of the United Kingdom! :lol:
The United Nations is a useless piece of sh*t that wants people to be decolonised against their will. :mad:

But I'm also agree with Isabella, cause I should accept ( although it's so hard ) that we were a part of this empire and lived with such nasty culture for 600 years... And consequently, Thoughts don't change so fast. ( so, 20 years is a short period actually, considering our situation ;) )

Well Altug, I know for your situation and of course I know reality today. I don't think you are Ottomans, however you don't were headscarfs etc etc.

I also don't see the fuss with Yugoslavia. If it is bad or not, we can talk in a different topic (this isn't the right place to do it), it is a fact that it had it's good as well as it's bad sides. I don't know why should I be ashamed or angry if someone connects me with Yugoslavia. It was our common country before. I personally can say that I lived in three countries so far :lol: I was born in Yugoslavia, I lived in Serbia and Montenegro, and now I live in Serbia :lol: I also don't think it is something we should be ashamed of. It is true that politicians ruined it and made our people hate each other, which is totally wrong IMO. However, from today's perspective, and under these circumstances, it would've been better if it was never created indeed. But for me all people of ex-yu (especially Serbs and Croats) are almost the same people. We have the same origins, but we are separated by religion and by faith. And now by the politicians as well. Not COMPLETELY the same people, but the same structure. Even our tempers are the same :)

@goktengri: Indeed, most people in ::rs, at least in my neighborhood still connect Turkey with Ottoman Empire :lol:. Everyone say "We were under Turks for 500 years"
