Quote #10

YASHA. What's the use of crying? [Drinks champagne] In six days I'll be again in Paris. To-morrow we get into the express and off we go. I can hardly believe it. Vive la France! It doesn't suit me here, I can't live here ... it's no good. Well, I've seen the uncivilized world; I have had enough of it. [Drinks champagne] (4.49)

Though they come from the same place, Yasha uses his travel as an excuse to discard Dunyasha as something lower than he.
