I understand why my grandparents fled... To escape communist rule and the promise of a better life in the West, makes sense to me. And while I am very thankful for the sacrifice they made, sometimes my mind wanders and I wonder what life would be like if I was to move back to Eesti.
No longer under Russian occupation and developing at a rapid pace, it seems like a good place to live. Plus I love the old-world charm of Europe.
I came across a link today that compares countries in a number of categories. So I plugged in Canada vs Estonia. The results were surprising.
Looks like Canada is a much better place to live.
I guess we're pretty lucky.
