    Does anybody remember the title of that book? I’m feeling like a trip down memory lane.

    I’ve been told that’s what it looks like in Europe, except everyone has bicycles instead of cars. True?

      Not true. First of all, Europe is not a monolith. Romania is extremely different from the Netherlands. Romania is, by some metrics, more car-centric than the US.

      Secondly, even in countries that are trying to make progress towards a less car-centric environment, different cities are moving at different speeds.

      Finally, even in cities moving faster away from it, you still have planning, funding and political issues that need to be ironed out.

        I noticed you didn’t deny the bunnies and pigs running the post office or the cute fox as a mayor. So I’m just gonna say that yeah, it’s mostly true.

    I love the Richard Scarey books. My favorite was. “What Do People Do All Day.”

    The book would should things like how electricity is made or how to build a house. It would show all the plumbing, heating and electric, with little arrows to show which way things went. It taught me how to look beneath the surface of things and wonder how and why things worked.

    hey I just wanted to share that I moved to a small, remote-ish village in Greece about a year ago (born & raised in Athens, a “big” city for our standards, the biggest in Greece) and it’s quite close to that.

    It’s been amazing although I miss ordering food online and maybe the occasional bar/coffee with friends.

    It’s almost inside a forest and 15’ drive from both mountain and amazing beaches

    Thank you for listening, I honestly hope that everyone has the choice to do the same <3
