About elite life in Europe

I think now many will really hurt. I myself used to love you to troll with stories like "the end of Europe", etc. But just the other day I talked with a real European, with the most ordinary and I really got a little scary.
About elite life in Europe is very, very much, really, to leave, told, only, Europe, less, Europeans, resort, because, in general, ideal, always, which, author, is, said

It was in France, at the Val d’Isere resort. By the way, this is a gorgeous place for skiing, but this is not the point.
Luca, fully and correctly, Luca Garrasino, works in the tourist office of this resort, where tourists usually come to get maximum information about everything that is in the resort and not to waste time on independent search.
So, Luca is a Frenchman, but he lived in Russia for several years in exchange and his Russian is on a very good level. I would even say on the ideal, so ideal that he taught us some words and spoke about their meaning.
In general, I rarely speak with foreigners, because I practically do not know languages. With translators, this is always a problem, but here Luke, who literally entertained us with his knowledge of the Russian language, got caught.We were shocked by the whole company and received great pleasure from communication.
Luka said that he had been working in a tourism office for more than three months. Our company is divided into skiers and snowboarders. And then someone, I do not remember who, asked Luka a question - snowboarding or skiing? The question of the series, Spartak or CSKA, Nikon or Canon. Well, solely for the sake of fun, that in someone's camp arrived.
But it turned out that the shoemaker without shoes. Luka, living in a ski resort, did not ride from those wonderful mountains from which we rode that day.
There was a pause in the air, and then the question - how have you been living and working here for 3 months and have never skated?
A little later, I managed to talk to Luka and he admitted that it is very expensive to ride for him. And not only to ride, the whole resort is very expensive for him, since a decent part of the salary goes to pay for housing.
Luka rents an apartment of 10 sq.m. for 400 euros per month.
Then I felt uneasy, but Luka waved his hand and declared that it used to be worse and he was huddled in an apartment of 8 sq.m. and it really was creepy. In such an apartment it is stuffy, quickly ran out of oxygen, and if you open the window, you freeze.
Walking around the resort, I noticed that the accommodation here is really expensive. Here is a studio in a chalet of 44 sq.m. worth 600,000 euros.Given the seasonality, and this is only winter-spring, the rent of such a flat should be at least 6,000 euros per seasonal month, and that is 200 euros per day. If you donate by the day, the rate should be even higher, at least 400 euros, in order to cover the downtime, otherwise it is simply unprofitable to donate it.

But I got distracted again. So, Luka complained that he barely made ends meet and for him skating or going to the bar is a luxury. We have to seriously squeeze and save.
He told me that he wants to go to Poland, because everything is cheap there. Then I, of course, objected to him that the salary in Poland would be much less. He seemed to agree, but he said that in Poland it's still easier.
And in general, he said that life in Europe is far from sugar and that Europeans, if not taking the rich, live very modestly and squat. Spend a little and save on everything.
Then I myself began to help him, many times noticed that Europeans love to sit in a cafe and twist one glass of wine in the evening and it’s hard to imagine a European who orders a lot of dishes for lunch or dinner. I remembered that almost all cars with manual transmissions are even double savings (at purchase and at operation, as with manual transmission there is less fuel consumption).Try to walk through the European streets and look for cars on the machine, you are unlikely to find them, well, or one for two dozen and then from the rental of a park or a foreigner. I remembered that the Europeans save on heating and water. Europeans even have a tradition of taking baths in a hotel when they travel or come on a business trip.
In fact, these moments are very, very much, we just do not always notice it.
Then Luka agreed with me and told how their family lives in Le Vigan, Languedoc-Roussillon, near Montpellier.
So, for many years they can not afford to make redecorating in the house, because his mom has a salary of only 500 euros. You have to save literally everything.
It is clear that this is remote, but that is how the main population of France lives.
At this moment we said goodbye, as it was already late, and the next day I had to get up early and fly to Moscow.
PySy
Yes, I understand that the majority of the population of our country has a salary several times smaller, but we have much lower expenses and do not freeze in our homes, even at very low temperatures.
I thought many times, but could I leave Russia and live somewhere in Europe? And every time I caught myself thinking that neither the standard of living,Neither the climate nor even other European values ​​can override their local mentality. I do not know how to describe it, but is it more heart-warming with us, dearer ...
Well, and you could go to live in Europe forever, but honestly?
