Do you eat the poultry ones or the pork ones? The poultry ones are slightly better but a good bit more expensive. I also like the internet connections in Poland. They seem to be that much better than in the UK. My parents have a rotten deal compared to me.

I wonder if you ever have lived in Western Europe.
Because you only see the positive parts and are not aware of the many annoyances you come across when living in a multicultural society. You should be glad to live in a beautiful country with only 1 dominant culture! Where i'm from it looks more and more like some 3rd world country, only the roads are better.

3rd world country

Memorize: There is ONE WORLD....JUST ONE WORLD. And it belongs to all of us equally.

You dreamer, wake up!
In the 60's and 70's a lot of hippies had such dreams, so they thought it was a good idea to open the borders for non-Europeans.

Now most of them begin to see that made a terrible mistake.

If you love your country (and i think you do) you should protect it against immigration!

So I assume you're against Polish immigration in the West, the US, Aus and Canada too? Or is that something else, is that not immigration?

But LTB is right: there is only one world, one small ball and we have to share it together. It doesn't belong to us, we belong to it, there's a difference. Like Keanu Reeves said in that flipperdyflop movie when the Earth stood still or something, "when we die, Earth lives; when Earth dies, we die." We don't own the world, the world owns us. So let's try and get along as much as pssbl.

Only very few Polish people cause trouble in other countries, unlike non-Western immigrants coming to Europe. So yes, that's something completely else.

You also have a very romantic view of the world. Unfortunately for you, most people don't want to share their part of the world and most people don't want to trade in their culture for something else. So instead of dreaming, maybe it's better for you two to get real.

That's a gross exaggeration you got there. So, the masses of non-Western (I take it you mean Non-European, as Polish ppl are considered non-Western as well) get up the minute they arrive and all of them, not a single exception, cause trouble? I could give you the same advice, my friend.

I am not a romantic, not by far. Nor am I a dreamer. Poland will have to believe in it sooner or later. They want to share in the wealth of being a member of the EU, they will have to take their share in immigration. Wether they like it or not. And what's this nonsense that you have to trade in your culture when you allow immigrants to come live in your country? What's gonna get lost? The all white culture? Yeah, you will see a couple more coloured faces in the streets, but that will be it. Get used to it, it's the modern world and just like Polish ppl came to us to work as here is where the money is to be made, and they were welcome as far as I'm concerned, so are ppl from other, much poorer places in this world.

So, I would give you the same advice: get real as immigration is part of life now, whether you like it or not. And if you don't like it, just try to get used to it. But given the remark you made earlier to LTB, I don't take it you're living in Poland.

I am American-Lemko and also love Poland. I have been there about 8 times since 1998 and can't wait to go back.

Whenever I visit, I feel very much at home. The people are wonderful, very kind and friendly. I have visited many towns and villages from Wroclaw to Sanok/Przemysl and from Warsaw to Zakopane. But I especially love Krakow and Lemkovyna. The rolling hills and mountains of Lemkovyna remind me of western Pennsylvania, where I was born. Lemkovyna also is the homeland of my ancestors, and I have made many wonderful friends there. Some day, I would like to visit Dansk.

I have studied the Polish language on my own but still only speak it like a second grader. Yet I try to use it exclusively in Poland. Somehow, I manage to communicate with the people. I think they appreciate it that I make an effort to speak their language. And when I use the wrong word, we enjoy a good laugh--which just makes things friendlier.

I also have a strong admiration for Poland and what the country has managed to accomplish since 1989. It is often difficult for Americans to appreciate that Poland has suffered through many wars on their lands, lived under the rulership of other kingdoms, and survived nearly 50 years of communist rule. Yet it has risen with its head held high. Even though I was not born there, I feel a great kinship as though it were my adopted land.

Many of them lie for a visa and when in Europe, many don't adapt, turn out to be criminals or try to prey as much as possible on the welfare system by telling sob stories about traumas, poverty and "discrimination".

And why are you denying that the western culture is bit by bit traded in for muslim culture?

"A couple more coloured faces" in the streets??? You obviously live in some small village with almost no foreigners, because you don't seem to have a clue how many non-Europeans already live in the west.

And unfortunately you are right that immigration is part of life nowadays, but more and more people become aware that immigration from non-European countries causes much more problems than it solves, so soon the pro immigration parties have no choice than to listen.

i love poland...


my friend's family that i wisited, respected my religional beliefs and they said they didn't bought any pork meat for 3 weeks at house...


they gave me the most beatiful room of their house when i wisited...


when i was in poland, when i paid someting from bakery and paid 2 zl for 1.80 the shopkeeper called me back and paid 20 groche back...


noone said me expensive price when they realized i am a foreigner..


every nation on the world, wanted to make their country bigger, in some period, first romans, than arabs, mongolians, macedonians, ottomans, hispanics, englishes, and at last soviets, germans (hitler) and at least the americans...


polishes are get on war just for defending their motherland.


they are so much religious, they pray to allah (yes, allah and god, and also yehove goes to same door brother) and wery respectful to the people from other religions...


polish girls are very beatiful,


german girls, scandinavian girls, russian girls are also seem very beatiful, blue eyes, blonde hairs


polish girls are respectful, they think you minimum theirself, their inside also beatiful, this is also seem in whole polish community...

a place is beatiful because of the people that living on it. or bad because of the people they living on it.

so in my opinion:

poland, is a small example, a minature,an agency of heaven in the world.


so, can you show me a reason not to be like poland? :)))

And that's the problem. You should have accepted to eat pork in order to show respect to them, not the other way round.

But I especially love Krakow and Lemkovyna.

Nice to hear it. But it is no wonder. I know £emkowynu very well. I was wandering many times through all its mountains. I especially remember one path through the hills near village Grab. It was November '84 and the path was fully covered with carrot colored needles of larch trees.

Posyłaju serdecznyja zaproszynia do odwydyn u £emkowyni !

I love Poland because of the strength of character of some good folk around me. I love stumbling across a tasty loaf of bread. I love the help of some good folk in shops (rarely happens, though). I love being out in nature here (also rarely happens).

What, you mean the old shag at the side of the road ploy and wave to the drivers as they go by? These conservative villagers would have none of it ;) ;) Before you knew it, the priest would come haring up with his big cross and mohair beret brigade, swiftly followed by the police.

I love the sausages in Poland, especially kabanos. For weight reasons, I don't eat them often.

Poland would be nicer if people would smile more, be more honest, not so competitive, not so pushy, work harder, wouldn't think about the past all the time, not drink and smoke so much, wouldn't steal and open up a bit about their feelings instead of keeping everything to themselves and let their problems eat them up then find relief in drinking vodka. Then Poland would be nice.

That probably sums it up, they need to relax more and not think everyone is out to rip them off. Theres more to life than hitting the bottle and then spend the rest of the time complaining.
