Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Same thing in NYC, living in the center is for Wall Streeters and the ticket prices for shows and concerts (all over the country) are unaffordable for the average guy even at face value.. for example, a few years ago I wanted to take my best girlfriend to see the Simon and Garfunkle concert, but the cheapest tickets were $150 each (and none remained) so we had to pass.

With my husband being a German citizen, we figure to move somewhere along the French/German border when I retire, and he'll be a baker for a while longer.  I'm hoping this will be relatively red-tape-free since he's a citizen of the EU.  We love England but love the continent more.

My first thought upon reading the French baker's comment was "if you can't take the competition..."
