Travel / Travelling to Łódź - advice needed pls [6]

1. If I get a train to Fabryczna, will it be easy to find somewhere which sells bus/tram tickets? I'm assuming you buy them at a kiosk like most other places, yes? Or do they have ticket machines (like at Wrocław airport)?

you can buy tickets at 'kiosks' :), i havent seen any tickets machines

2. Is this place easy to get to from town:
Centralne Muzeum Włókiennictwa, Biała Fabryka Geyera, ul. Piotrkowska 282

yes, its not far from the center, if you tell where you are going to stay i can tell you how far exactly

i think "siema" is the word made by Jurek Owsiak in early 90's when the Wielka Orkiestra Świątecznej Pomocy (The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity) was made. He was used to say siema every time he was appearing on tv :) its made from "jak sie masz" as Szwed said :)

Life / How much Zloty to have an average life in Poland? [98]

it's true, lot of my friends live in rented flats. but i was thinking about M3 flat for 3-4 people, so if you want to rent it for your own you will have to pay much more... 2000zl (but i guess you won't need such a big flat for your own) :)

What's the difference between daj and dawaj then?

it means the same :) but in sentence like "dawaj mi piwo" (give me a beer) dawaj sounds more rude for me :P

it's hard to explain but i will try
daj - means i want to drink this beer
dawaj - i have to drink it right now! i don't want to wait anymore

something like that :)

pork chop with potatoes, sauerkraut salad, and buttermilk to drink

buy a piece of pork, tenderize it, cover with panure then fry it in oil, boil potatoes (don't mash them if they are young), for salad use the sauerkraut, onion, carrot, little oil, salt peper.

thats all :) this is the most ordinary dish in poland :)

Language / Już and jeszcze [36]

But I'm seeing used in all sorts of phrases that don't seem to make sense, e.g. To ja "już" wybieram kino.

it means that you have other options to choose (like going to the theater). but you know that both are boring for you. so now you say "To ja juz wybieram kino"... you don't want to go there but it's better than going to the theater :)
