Come ci troviamo in Wild Wild West!!

Dimenticato dirti. Se vorrei aggiungere anche in mia lingua nativa Bulgara la scritta in tuo profile e questa:

"Благодаря ви за посещението"!

Ciao, Mimi

:o) Meglio di no, Mimi, se no mi tocca magari scrivere commenti in bulgaro, stavo già per togliere il russo. Non mi conviene scrivere in lingue delle quali non riesco a controllare la traduzione... :o) Ci avevo provato una volta a mandare un breve commento russo, col risultato che il mio "bello" è finito a significare "Nizza" - la traduzione deve essere passata prima per l'inglese "nice" che è anche il nome della città. :o)

Ciaooo, Hermann.

Hallo, Ralf !

Die Blütezeit Bodies war um 1879, damals hatte es 10.000 Einwohner. Es gab dort in dieser Zeit 65 Saloons entlang der Hauptstraße, ein Rotlichtviertel mit zahlreichen Bordellen, ein Chinesenviertel mit einem taoitischen Tempel und einer Opiumhöhle, eine Eisenbahn, mehrere Zeitungen, sieben Brauereien und Kirchen verschiedener Religionen.

Aber auch das Verbrechen hielt Einzug. Morde, Überfälle und Postkutschenraub waren beinahe an der Tagesordnung. Die Goldgräberstadt Bodie genoss einen schlechten Ruf und galt in dieser Zeit als eine der wildesten und gesetzlosesten Städte des Westens. Überliefert ist das Zitat einen kleinen Mädchens, das mit seinen Eltern nach Bodie ziehen sollte und in sein Tagebuch schrieb: "Good-bye God, I'm going to Bodie!" ("Auf Wiedersehen Gott, ich ziehe nach Bodie!").

Es gab dort also ziemlich viel "action", Ralf. :o)

Vielen Dank für deinen netten Kommentar und das "Like".

Beste Grüße aus Meran, Hermann.
