not_polish 11 Aug 2015 #1Hi!I'm not here to impress the inquisitors here, but just to see if anyone else agrees with me on a few things.As stated previously, I really enjoy a lot of things about Poland, not just generic stuff like "the beer" or "the women," but real things that are unique.The fact that I was railing on it for its hatred and backwardwardness was just to blow off a bit of steam - I am, after all, from a first world country and I chose to live here despite the fact that my wife and children now have American citizenship, so there must be something I like here.So here is my list of what I DO like:1) Love of land - people here are real blut und boden types and love their land - they take great pride in horticulture and agriculture and gardens here are excellent.2) A very interesting literary tradition, if underrated - some examples of authors here I like that most people in the west don't know about are stanislaw Lem and boleslaw Prus.3) An appreciation for alpinism - here in the south, these guys blow me away in terms of their natural inclination to conquer vast heights. I'm from the midwest in the US and we don't have mountains. Here people love and appreciate great mountains.4) Very healthy diet - Polish food is very healthy compared to American. It can be somewhat spartan at times, but I really appreciate the diet always. This also brings out a healthy people, who for the most part dont have an obesity issue the way Americans and Brits do.5) Lack of exploitation of prices. When people here my accent I rarely, if ever, have been charged extra. One time I even let my wallet fall out and someone picked it up for me. Amazing!Nobody wants to talk about positive stuff? In Poland?No way!
