The Caucasus too.  :P

Stop discriminating against Caucasians (Caucasoids?:D), this reeks of a crypto virtue signaling jab at "white privilege".   :P

North of the Caucasus is fine actually. Though nowadays, Lesser Caucasus in included as well so that would make Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan part of geographic Europe (cultural being another matter).

Or we could go back to the good ole Tanais/Don river limit, pre-Peter the Great.

Russia is pretty cheap.

Including Turkey, and not Russia, is indeed very cheap.  :P

The map includes Russia, even if all we're told is that it's less than $1.

Well he had fallen on hard times. I've seen his work on some really beat up non-glamorous buildings in Stockholm.

I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

It looked high to me too. I don't have a smartphone so I asked my wife how much her contract cost; £12 per month and that includes 8Gb data allowance plus unlimited calls and texts. So I guess that maybe if you buy 1Gb on a pay-as-you-go basis its £5................or the map is wrong  :mellow:

I don't have a smartphone

At this point in time I'd be disappointed if you did. :P
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.

Further exciting data from the UK on phone costs; my eldest pays £20 a month and has unlimited data.

@Syt....I may buy one next year; my youngest will move out some time in the next year and when he does I will be free. I'm going to need a fancy phone for my travels  :cool:

I get 2gb for £8. I'm sure I shopped around quite a lot and it was one of the better options. There must be some catch with these others?

My bundle comes with 10Gb of mobile Internet for €50, but it also includes cable internet and a landline that I've never used.

They are monthly contracts, service only, they both bought their phones outright.
