/ How often do you visit Poland?
I always find that going to another country is not about the big things but the small ones.
Yes, it’s the small things that are important. In every country I have been to what surprised me (I dont know why) was the similarities between people if you are observant you see these differences.The salt and bread thing
I have read about that here. The first time I heard of this tradition was watching The World at War narrated by Laurence Olivier on TV as a teenager. He mentions that traditional gift of welcome in Eastern Europe, it always stayed with me.
I spoke to one of my Polish friends about this and she produced a small piece of wafer from her purse.
Working hard and saving for your goal is important these people save every penny they have. Its quite a shock and humbling to hear a big man tell you that he never expected to own a motorbike, he was smiling like a dog with two *****.
What I like is that these people had the guts to up sticks and make the most of what was offered.
