The more I hear about Europe, the more I want to stay
here. :) I could hardly deal with the three hour
change to SF, so I dread my first trip East. I
suppose I'll survive, but I guess I'll need to plan a
down day both going and coming...
Thanks for the updates!
Europe's wonderful. It certainly lacks "quality of life" in the American sense (ease, convenience and wealth) but it more than makes up for it with joie de vivre -- architecture, culture, life priorities, liberal politics. I like having seen the benefits of both models and to have an American sense of responsibility, but as far as what I want out of life, sign me up for the European Way.
