Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Is the configuratin that people live in better suited for survival in Europe than the US (and Canada)? If I needed to get around by walking, I know where I wouldn't want to do it.

I guess it depends on what you're walking towards.  If it's a market that's empty, it doesn't do much good to go there.  If it's towards a field to plow, plant or harvest, then maybe it would be better if it were reasonably close. The US and Canada have a lot of open space (albeit owned by someone) left that could be used for something useful other than housing, such as subsistence farming.
