    Paris-france is CHEAP. Come to London-england and you'll know what I'm talking about. Only place in the world when you could pay more than £2 for a mars bar...

    Sweden is a lot more expensive than England, are the prices there consistant? You can go to two different parts of London, (very close proximity), and find 2 different prices, not fair.

    Will you please stop complaining? I've allready told you that in Romania the average wage is 100 dollars and a Mars Bar is 1,50 dollars. At least they pay better salaries in the western countries... :innocent:

    ok,ok, let me tell you, here in Hungary we have 25% tax which goes on every product (i meen electronics, clothes...). Thats a kind of tax which in Europe I think is just about 10-12%. And the minimum salary is 250 dollars/month and the average is 450 dollars.

    what???? you are rich if you can earn 2500 dollars here. Thats enough for everything (almost). For example just because we have to pay 150 dollars/month for our flat. and that doesnt count electricity and gas. B)

    This is one of Romania's paradoxes:
    Average wahe- 100 bucks
    Average rent: $100
    Average electricity, water etc: $100

    And people have to eat and dress, too...

    Thas sad though.

    Many Hungarians who live next to the border of Romania and Hungary go shopping there cos in Romania the food is much-much cheaper.

    As a paradox, people who live next to the Austrian border go shopping there even for sugar cos its still cheaper there then in Hungary :blink:
