Let's just say my sentiments are with the left.
Italy it is. Its story is etched in its architecture. There's ancient, medieval, renaissance, industrial cities and mixes of all.
I don't know about others here, but culturally speaking, Europe is much closer to us than the Americas. Having lived on both sides of the Atlantic, I never felt at home in the U.S. or Canada. Something was missing. It’s just the culture and mentality of people.
I agree that the lifestyle in Europe is more similar to Lebanon than to America. Even though Americans and Canadians are descendents of Europeans, the countries themselves are very new and the geography is very different. Also, people who moved to the new continent, back in the day, had a different mindset to those who stayed in Europe, and that mindset was passed on to new generations. And before the arrival of new technology, it was easier to travel and have communication between Europe and the Levant than between Europe and America.
