Americans love big spaces. For some reason, we hate to be cramped. It may have stemmed from all of our ancestors voyages over to the Americas. Think about it. Those boats that traveled here had quarters that maximized on space. I am sure if you could afford the trip yourself, you'd have a bigger space than say, an indentured servant. And forget about the slaves that were forced over; they didn't have a choice. So to answer the title questions, I hope you find answers in the slide show below.
I chose this picture, not because of what the apartment looks like, but because what the description says about it. It is 400 sq. ft with 4 people living in it, including 2 children. Americans were not impressed and called it child abuse while the Europeans said, it was the way they live and that outside is their living room. I loved it. I also know that I can't do it. Well, maybe, but not today. I hope you enjoy this show as much as I.
