I'm surprised how much more expensive Europe has gotten - must be fairly worth it though.

Well, euros are twice the amount of the dollar or something. You know, two dollars ish is one euro. Or close enough. What's weird is the amount of euros on prices there is the same as amount of dollars in the US, or more, so if you're coming there with dollars and have to convert them it's having a lot less money and trying to buy the same stuff...

But yeah. I didn't really like spending an entire year in Italy. Short term tends to be better cause you can spend more and have air conditioning and cars and stuff. But there's a totally different world perspective over there if you spend a long time in Europe. I don't think I can see America quite the same way as I used to anymore...

I guess it's just a lot older then here, and there's so many different cultures to experience so close together

Ah, I see. My parents are going to Europe towards September/October - they are still uncertain as it's a little expensive by their standards, but I hope they get to go.

I like all the old buildings....*sigh* In Ireland there were a bunch of tiny house-sized castle-ish ruins with no tourists at all...

Permanent-building-making people haven't been around that long in North America to make them, that's true...

Hehehe...I got Pop because of Discothèque...I'd made a promise to myself never to buy Pop, and that song totally ruined that plan...

Did your mom have all the other CDs? If so, lucky. My parents kind of hate U2 so I bought them all myself...
