I gave 5 zl to a crippled old lady aged about 90 begging in the street, and a well-dressed Polish lady stopped me and told me I shouldn't give her anything.
She was right - you shouldn't give her anything. In my home town - Gdynia, I saw luxury car coming to pick those old beggars. Anyway - you choice.
In 9 days I only saw one internet cafe, so it wasn't easy for me to write home or check anything. I only used the internet three times: twice in private houses and once in the tourist information centre.
this is a bit strange, but I've noticed it as well - probably nobody uses those cafes, everyone have broadband at home.
The number of Poles that still smoke
Well, personally I hate those neonazi smoking bans - cigarette prices are high, goverments make a lot of money selling them and they treat smokers as dogs ("go smoke outside, we dont care its winter")
