USA, Canada / Do many Polish people in America hate Americans? [592]

Hate...its a strong word. I came to USA 23 years ago and I fell in love with Americans. Fantastic people. i wish my co-patriots would be a little like them. Polish people are getting better but they still have a long way to go in terms of tolerance, sense of humor, everyday strength and courage , optimism.

Calliegal235 , your post are pretty amazing. It takes an American loving Polish man and being open minded to have your perspective and understanding of PL.

I was born there so maybe I'm less objective but reading your post I found myself agreeing pretty much on 100% with you.
I'm nTuralized Californian too ( probably like your husband) I love this land, I love the climate, variety of ...everything. From extreme temps ( Death Valley) to everlasting snow ( Lassen Park and other) . I'll never get used to beauty of San Jacinto Mtn covered with snow while I'm sunbathing under the palm trees...etc. Maybe if I'd be living in the North States I'd thnk differently about PL?

Who knows?

Genealogy / Born in Poland, moved to US as a baby - What do i need to get a PL passport? [19]

You really puzzle me. Why you want to go back to Poland. I can understand going for vacations...but permanently????
USA gives us unlimited opportunity. I came to USA not speaking one English word and is beter than I could ever imagined. My son ( about your age) has great a carrier , satisfaction etc he could never dream to have in PL.

Majority preferred to go to USA. You go in opposite direction...funny.

Food / Hawaiian Kona coffee to buy in Warsaw [12]

I'm from California too. Real, 100% Kona coffee or this typical from Honolulu 10%?
When I go to any country I'm trying to taste local food. In case of coffee I checked many coffee shops in Gdansk-Sopot-Gdynia and I fond maybe 2 places with really good coffee. Maybe Warszawa is better.

I'm Polish- American and I love my adopted country like I never felt about my birth-country...Poland.
I admire Americans for their hard work, sense of humor, respect to each other, ingenuity...and on and on...
I felt extremely lucky to have a privilege to live here, to work, to be a part of this wonderful Country.
Most polish immigrants, legally here, feels alike. Chicago or Greenpoint is unique ....unfortunatelly in negative sense.
