Each to his own ... but I disagree. Some years back I spent a while living on the Avenue Montaigne ... in the "cellar" of Monsieur le Duc de La Rochefoucauld. The Dutchess used the rent money to have her hair done at a nearby salon ... every single day that salon was open. On the first of the month... the Dutchess herself would knock on the door and ask for the rent.

That is a really great story. Reminds me of an old political cartoon from the 1800s featuring American heiresses surveying marriage prospects with titles of nobility but little financial means, in the style of a horse show. "German duke, crumbling castle on the Rhine, $20,000 OBO".

Very small amount of russians go to other countries for study or work as it is usual for europeans and americans. Though I think most of students go back home after finishing their universities in other countries.

I'm also thinking now about moving to another country... may be not forever, but anyway I have no plans to come back to Russia after. I'm kind of open minded person, but still think it won't be easy to get used.

What about you? Do you live in your original country now? If not, why have you moved from there and how long will stay away? What difficulties have you met while getting used to your new place in the world? Are you ready to leave your original country forever? Which country would you prefer for this?

answer would be yes if my country was considered 3rd world....

Because compared to "third world" countries, others are so overpopulated right?

I've never thought of that before, but I have never been sick when in "third world" countries. I got the standard issue of vaccines when I first started traveling to African countries (malaria, etc) but you get vaccines in "first world" countries as well. I have never had a cold, fever, flu, etc while in Africa/Asia/SA. I've caught colds in the middle of the summer here in the states. My mother just had a weird bout of fever/cold in early August and she barely travels.

This is so very true for me. I first began to notice it twenty years ago.

The three places I was so sick that I prayed to die ... Bern, Switzerland; Brugge, Belgium; & Healdsburg, California.

They have a hôtel particulier right across from the Plaza Athenee. My last recollection it is shared with the Tunisian Embasy. You don't need to phone ahead ... just stop in and say hello when you find yourself in Paris. But don't park in the driveway ... or the Duc will look out the window and make a frantic shooing motion with his hands.

I have left my native country for another European one. I don't want to stay here for the rest of my life but I might not return "home" either. Having studied German in school, fitting in was/is not a problem.
