Well, at 2,40€ (3,75$) a draft beer, that won´t last long, I´m afraid...

Here is Ireland? Yes, I was there in 1996 and even then it was a very expensive country. I´ll go to Japan again, a beer in a pub (canned, they hardly know drafts) costs only 1,50€!

Oh, my city, Lyon, is just above my home city Istanbul in the 28th place. From which market in İstanbul did they fill the basket, for me Lyon is much more expensive.
