I was browsing through yesterdays Steubenparade 2010 videos as i came across this organisation :

Gottscheer people

Only by the video description i learned that these are actually slovenian-german-americans

Well actually even austrio-german-slovenian-americans http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

As always, the Habsburgs are to blame for this confusion http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

They also have a Miss Gottschee http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif

Ah, I see you allready helped yourself with an explanation.

I'm not at all surprised that they don't wave Slovenian flags... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Well the Habsburgs were very advanced for that time.
You know...the whole "unite, unite Europe" idea. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Well, i can definitely understand that there are no austrian flags to be seen.

They did not qualify for the world cup ... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif ....the shame ..... THE SHAME http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

This is something for Mittelwaechter. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

The ladies speak "Gottscheerisch" which is a german dialect spoken in medieval times.

I can understand them pretty well with some exceptions here and there at which i dont get at all what they're saying. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Its quite close to bavarian so Mittelwaechter will understand them much better than i do.

Basically they are ranting about how lack of jobs and insufficient infrastructure made life difficult for them and they imagine what things may have been like if they had taken different decisions. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

The lady on the right says that building a house in Slovenia was easier and cheaper for her rather than doing the same in Germany or Austria.

I have no doubt about that.

Yes, that is some sort of a national sport here...building houses.
If you don't live in a city no-one is taking you serious until you build yourself a HOUSE ! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif
