You'd love it where I live. I feel like I have the best of both worlds. I'm on the outer edge of the Denver-metro area, so all the amenities of the big city, but I'm less than 10 minutes out of the mountains, right near the foothills.

There isn't a lot that we don't have here, but good beer comes to mind. I hate Coors - actually there's something in it that I'm allergic to. Bud is bland. I adore Canadian beers, and Scottish Ales. Microbrews are OK, but I'm just not a microbrew snob.

No sleds are still VERY popular! Well, if you're talking these kinda sleds......



Then yeah you've been watching too many movies. Those were like awhile ago. Nowadays, snow tubes are becoming more popular. They look like this and are filled with air-



And they're very fun! I even have one!!

Before tubes, plastic sleds were more popular:



But not so many people use those anymore. So anyways, yes sledding is still very popular! Sorry if I'm making your jealous

Alright well I want Tim Tams too!!!!!!
Oh and I would definitely like some REAL German or Dutch chocolate!

Wow, Tim Tams seem to be the popular choice! I think there is a lot to offer in the US, so I'm still thinking.

Haven't you gotten a better selection since Finland joined the EU? I moved to Germany in the days of the "original" EU, and have found that with the addition of more and more new members, and way fewer customs barriers (no complaints about globalization on my part, as far as food is concerned), the selection of fresh veggies and fruits year round has become incredible, and prices have tumbled. The trend here is towards organic supermarkets, or organic sections in regular supermarket chains, and they also carry a lot of ingredients for vegetarian dishes.

Jcat, I will happily send you triscuits and grapenuts if you could send me Sanwald Kristelweizen. My most favorite beer.

I live in a city of about 180 000 inhabtants, the whole country has a bit over 5,2 million people, so the market isn't that big. I can get basic stuff like tofu, soy protein products, veggie burger mix etc. in every supermarket, but I sometimes envy people in places like London and LA for their incredible variety in vegan clothing, labels in common stores informing vegan customers and so on. About 8% of Finns are vegetarians.

Edit: I was a bit suprised, when I had trouble finding stuff like soy milk, tofu etc. in Spain, a big country. A guess it's not a vegetarian friendly country

Anything that isn't leather, wool etc. (=animal derived) Of course we have clothes like that here, but I'm merely fantasizing about shops where you wouldn't have to check the labels all the time.

Strawberry soymilk, Parmazano, and veg*n Skittles and Starburst. It didn't take me long to fall in love with the UK when I was there!

American Apparel!

You'd go nuts in that store. All vegan, all sweat-shop free, all made in the U.S.A.

I'm sort of addicted to it.

I wish. Perhaps we could make an arrangement?
