Europeans are better than us.

It may have been because it was a Saturday…
It may have been because it’s the tail end of indian summer here in Helsinki with unexpected blue skies and sun shining…
It may have been the sleep deprivation…
It may have just been the novelty curve…

But, gal-dangit, Europeans are better than us.

They appreciate the unique vs. the mass manufactured.
The food is fantastic.
You can walk/bike to everything.
There’s public transit available anytime, anywhere (that doesn’t just look like an aquarium for poor people)
They make time for taking time out (Sitting at a cafe is a spectator sport)
Comparitavely, we dress in metaphorical hand-me-downs from the special needs thrift store.

Sorry North America, but today’s pseudo scientific study has them winning.

Please feel free to comment to this and let me know anything superultra awesome that I might have forgotten about NA that will redeem us in the rankings!
