Yep, you are right. We always see the grass greener elsewhere! But i'm tired about pollution and traffic. (like many people i believe).
I'd love to live in a huge garage lost in a mountain with a lot of great cars (S800, 240Z, Z28 IRocz, some frenchies gti ... Who speak about pollution?), a lot of guitars and amps, a lof of arcade games and a lot of jewels computers ...
I happen to like the country I live in and was born in and feel very privileged to be here. I spent collectively quite a few years serving overseas, and each time I flew back and saw the green landscapes, landed and sunk my first pint of proper beer I always felt very humbled. Yes the country has it's problems, yes there are people in need in our country and yes there is violence, corruption, theft and all sorts, but I would not want to live anywhere else.
The traffic sucks, as does the cost of living, it's cold some days, then hot the next (regardless of the season) and that gives us something to talk to strangers about. If it snows the country comes to a standstill because we are not used it and it's not like it has happens every year past, so we get the day off or just get stuck at work.
I have internet & lots of computers, my kids have education, food, a roof over their heads and as proven very much so in the last few years (for my kids) we have good health care (some may argue, I personally won't).
Moving to a hot country and getting a tan and surfing each day (as per the Californian adverts we have on TV over here a lot) sounds great, but can you get Frey Bentos Pies, good lager, Fish and chips and when you are standing in a queue (we Brits like queues), what do you talk to the person next to you about if not the whether?
Mostly for me, if it's for sale in another country and not post-able, it was not meant to be.
