gapingvoid: "european civilisation has sown the seeds of its own decline and fall"
"Europe is the world's most expensive luxury good," I said. "Every year it get a little more expensive, and nobody has any good ideas about how to make it cheaper."
With several trips to Europe, business and pleasure, and with "sometimes" business partner from Wien (Vienna), my conclusion is that Europe has become a "DisneyLand" with full time occupants. Maybe becoming "Disneyland" : the Old Folks Home.
