"how do you know that you've already crossed polish-german border?

i would say due to a recent experience as in like 4 days ago being stopped twice once at the border and then again for passport checks in Germany ...

I guess. Once I am in Poland I don't need to read PF/silly posts about women.

You have to look for organic food, actually actively hunt it in a shop and pay extra for it.

When paying 5 Euro/ £2:50 for a beer seems reasonable.

When you (think) that Carlsberg/Budwiser/Miller are tasty beers.

For me the Krowki is all gone, and you say Proże, but nothing happens. Sorry if I spelled this wrong, I speak little Polish and spell even less.

I think this is in the PF rules but it also states that you must tell us all about your trip.
It is in the rules, somewhere in the middle near the back, or was it at the front?

you miss Polish Trams

The last few years they have put in new trams, they look very good, still loads of the old trams. I have heard of a party tram that you can hire and have a party on. And then there is the really old tram which they put in Rynek Głowny, but it does not go anywhere it's just for tourist or something.

when you wonder where your next kebab will come from. then realize you'll have to buy a $1,100 plane ticket to get the best ones.

when everything and everyone is disgusting and the conversation is mindless
