    Check out the people living in Transylvania Romania. You tube.
    Modern times living on primitive conditions naturally .
    Even their own kids don't stick around to live like that .
    Could I live like that ? may be I could if I could have my shop and tools . but that's every where I go.

    Many youngsters abandon rural life for the cities, to take better advantage of conveniences of city life, like making a decent living.

    Well, there are the educational opportunities in the city that are not available in the country, even tho that is changing.

    I have worked with a number of Romanians and the cost of living there is amazingly low. Basilli asked me about a Spyderco Police pocket knife..
    "Good knife...how much?"
    "About $150," I answered.
    "Good..dollar fifty..."
    "No. One hundred fifty dollars."
    "No, no...Romania, one dollar...six big beer...two loaves bread. One hundred dollars, fine Russian girl, one month...Pretty girl, big breasts. $10,000...new house, big house..two bedroom."
    I gave him the knife after I finished laughing.

    I halfway would like to go us to teach some better ways to do things and not disrupt the economy too much .
    But people in those countries are set in their ways, It would take years to get established and longer to teach something new. .
