It is funny that I was knocking on many doors in the Nordic countries but always got the same answer: "It’s nice but expensive, we don’t have that money". People are very rational there. In the southern European countries, like Italy or Macedonia, people are very irrational. They will rather give their money more for utopia, like for making a sun for someone else, than for something rational. And, for example Macedonia is one of the poorest countries in Europe, where salary is 10 times lower than the salary in the Nordic countries, and Macedonians pay for this. But this represents our culture.
