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

I live in a city of 18 million people.  I have no idea how many cars there are, but it's a lot.  And it is highly unusual for anyone to drive one of them without constantly sounding the horn.  There is a vast amount of construction, as well.  It is the noisiest place I've ever encountered.  We have it all -- air pollution, noise pollution, light pollution....

The result being that I can sleep through almost anything.  It's weird, I think I've subconsciously learned how to differentiate between "important" noise and unimportant noise.  I will wake up if something strange happens, but usually only then.

I also relish quiet to a degree I never thought possible.
