Germans are friendly to the Americans as how BULLERICAN expressed it ,the AMERICANS LIBERATED THEM
AND THEY ARE GRATEFUL TOO FOR BECOMING A DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY,
which is an American achivement.
May be in small towns in West Germany is different and how I said they like to learn English
and from a BULGARIAN They can not learn English.
But if you speak Turkish or Arabic,they will turn you a cold shoulder,believe me!
DO NOT LISTEN WHAT RUBBISH THE MEDIA IS TALKING!
The Federal RESERVE BANK gives insurance for every bank deposit of US citizen up to
100 000 $.
In real life it means,if your bank files for bankruptcy,your 401 K plan will be paid out by the Government as I said up to 100K.
Beside this you always have the funds,which you paid to the Social Security,when you were working.
in BG are:REIFEISEN BANK(Г–STERREICHISCHE BANK)
POSTBANK(devision of the GERMAN POSTBANK,owned by DEUTSCHE POST...government company).
No American banks are represented in BG.
what do you mean by "native friends?"
I AM NOT GERMAN and I do not look as German.
I have many friends...Hungarians,Persians,Bulgarians,Russians,Slovakians,
Basilians,Americans(in Los Angeles,in Berkeley and Oakland;in Seattle,in Dallas,Texas a.s.o.).
Recently I befriended an young lady from KUBA,who studies in Berlin Business,but still does not speak German.
Today I talked to a gay from ALGER.
I said that I do not have GERMAN friends,beside my neighbors.
YOU ARE RIGHT!
The towns in Western countries issue MUNICIPAL BONDS or other securities,which usually are bought by conservative investors, as those
securities are backed by the LOCAL government and in many cases local
THIS IS A EXELLENT WA FOR SMALL TOWNS TO FINANCE THEIR PROJECTS...
The MUNICIPAL papers have a long life span of usually 30 yearsmwhat means the local government has sufficient time to
pay out the principal+interes rate.
The BG TOWNS should get economists,who studied CORPORATE FINANCE and
HOW TO GET RICH WITH OTHER'S PEOPLE MONEY!
the financial sector in Bulgaria is in the hands of OLD,CONSERVATIVE BANKS,which
do not expand in such RISKY investments as short NAKED selling,futures contracts,
SWAPS and other derivatives.
Usually they require COLLATERAL and at least 40% downpayment on mortgage loans,therefore
BG Finance industry was not affected as the US Banks.
YOU ARE RIGHT KOLEGIAN!
ISLAND IS BANKRUPT.
BBC shoewd an interview with their president and he was asked why ISLAND
borrowed money from Russia?
He answered:"When our beloved friends(he meant the other EU countries) turn
their back and do not help us,we have to look for other alternatives!"
As far as I know sland applied also for AID from the World Bank.
you are talking RUBBISH!
If Russia insists Ukraina did not pay for gaz received and
VICE VERSA Ukraina insists Russia did not pay royalties for using her territory for gaz transit,
why ought THIRD PARTIES,WHO ARE NOT PART OF THIS DISPUT SUFFER?
We live in the 21 th century,MY dear, and such a disput belongs in a COURT of LAW!
Both countries ought to meet at the EU Court of Justice in Strassburg.
YOU ARE RIGHT!
BULGARIANS DO NOT HAVE FRIENDS IN THE OLD EU COUNTRIES!
The Western EU countries like UK,Germany,France ,Belgium a.s.o. look at us
as second class people from the Balkans,who are not as sophisticated as themselves!
I have been living and still live in Western Europe since 1971 but I do not have
ONE German,English,French or s.o. friend.
Here,you must be BLOND and speak without accent...once they learn you are a
foreigner...they do not talk to you!
As I live very close to the residence of the Turkish ambassador,I talk very often to the Turkish ,who are living there.
They do not mind that I am Bulgarian.
