Bled should seriously reform itself. The nature is nice, but the town is stuck in the '80s.

My mother-in-law worked in insurance company and one of her clients was a popular Slovak rich businessman. He used to vaunt that if his jeans got dirty, he did not even bother to wash it, just threw it away and bought a new one In the end, he always stressed how much water he saved by washing

It's actually a 2011 Hyundai i10. The facelift version looks much better than the original i10. I got the most powerful engine available for this car, a 1.2 L with 86 HP.

I traded the Kangoo in, got a pretty good deal actually. The Kangoo had driven 226,000 km and is nearly 10 years old, so it was time for a new one. I contemplated buying another van, but they are heavier and I didn't feel like paying € 90 - 100 per month in road taxes. The Hyundai i10 gets approximately the same gas mileage, and costs only € 25 per month in road tax.

The effect of litter is not apparent, nor on rate of recycling. However, since the aluminium cans have value, it means Quebec people spend much more money, to pay all the deposits, the deposit bureaucracy, and also have to pay more for the recycling pickup, since the recycled material does not have the valuable aluminium waste.

It really seems a terrible system this deposit... (it makes sense maybe for re-usable bottles like for beer, but not 1 time use containers...)

another silly one is we have to pay 10 cents deposit on beer bottles. Most (Canadian-bottled) beer uses same bottle and the bottle is washed and used again. But imported beer (e.g. Heineken) comes from Europe or elsewhere in a special bottle. These bottles are also subject to deposit, but they are not re-used, just thrown away once they are returned. We could just throw it in the recycling bin for free, but instead, we need to pay, and carry them back to the store, who throws them in the garbage
The deposit system in Estonia works very well. Even if you consider that the amount of re-usable bottles is quite small, the rest gets recycled as well, nothing is taken to the dump.

If people are reluctant to take containers back to the store it means the deposit is too small. In Estonia it's € 0.08 or $ 0.11 for most containers.

In 2013 the number of bottles or cans returned was 240 million or 185 per person.

If being French means "86. You shower every day", then I'm French and proud to be.

EDIT: Car selfie in your average dirty Turin roads:

Really nice colour. Bring back memories...

My father once owned Renault 18 TLJ, which was also blue. I remember that this particular model TLJ had for those times new "innovative" 5 speed gearbox. Older model Renault 18 TL had just 4 speed gearbox.

American style Chevy's are usually imported, you do see a Chevrolet Suburban or a Corvette from time to time.

Back in the days there was Daewoo, a Korean brand. I'd say it was the least popular of the three major Korean carmakers (Hyundai, Kia & Daewoo). Chevrolet took over Daewoo for the European market, but they weren't very successful.

Chevrolet closes all businesses in Germany this year.
In Hungary their cars were pretty popular before the crisis because of low prices of course.
