  •  Amen cocinero! (5+ / 0-)

    I've been between cars a few times, and tried to make it without, but where I live, and the work I do (ironically, environmental education and restoration) don't allow it. Makes me crazy, but I bike and metro as much as I can, and multi-task my drives as much as possible.

    I spend time in Vienna, Austria, and drool over how awesome their public transport system is. Streetcars, busses, bike lanes, subway, trains - almost all the time, it's way easier to get where you're going by public transport. It's also a very walkable city, with small shops and cafes and restaurants and markets all over the place - the transportation infrastructure supports a lot of neighborhood niche markets - the exact opposite of the US strip mall big box model.
