From Azoria:


Haha, so true. My other son has a teeny-tiny apartment in Paris. He *would* like a bit more room some day, if only so he could cook on a real stove instead of a hot plate.

How different things are in Europe really hit home the day the street cleaner went down the street outside our hostel. I looked out the window and saw a vehicle smaller than some of the 4X4 pickup trucks I see here at home.
Those pickup trucks would never fit into many of the narrow cobblestone streets in that town, and thank goodness, because they are filled with pedestrians--so many people walk through them instead of driving everywhere.
Do they drive pickup trucks over there?

I didn't want to be the one to tell her that pickup trucks are an American thing, hardly to be found outside of our borders. Thanks BWP for breaking the news to her gently....

Haha!!! Thanks folks! Well, I don't even have one here, wished I did though...only to like move things or when I buy something for the house to be able to transport it home! I think I am in for a different adventure.
