this is back in 2003 and there must have been at least 20 or so in the City and they used to congregate in a pub in Chopina Street off Lipowa Street. ;0)
and it could have just as well been a sports team doing some training there or something for a short while and then they were off to new horizons.
20 is hardly "overrun" in any case.
back to reality, folks.
I dont know about you mate but when i lived in Wroclaw most of the guys i drank with were Yanks. They may have made up only a small portion of the population in terms of Brits vs Yanks but you guys were always in the bars.
In 4 years, I could count the number of yanks I met in bars on one hand. just sayin'.
I don't know how many Americans live in Lublin right now but when we lived there, there where maybe 3 or 4
3 or 4??? It's an endemic!!!
If thats the case which it clearly isnt i knew at least 15 of them at any one time.
Because you were finding fish in a very small barrel.
You're a native speaker and you worked in an industry that, if any americans existed in Wroclaw, were also in aside from the random american or 2 working at Google or the middle aged guy doing a 2-3 year contract at some other American firm like HP. You knew 15. How many Americans do you think the avg. Pole knows that lived in Wroclaw for 3-4 years? I'd pose this question to all the poles on this forum but people would lie about it out of spite.
With all that said, ukpolska, if you got beef with the USA, fine, just make sure that when you decide to talk smack, you got your facts straight.
If they did, the Poles, would come and go as they pleased and wouldnt overstay in the USA. Lots if illegal Poles in the USA anyway. I know some been here for 10 to 15 years.
Is anyone else out there not completely and utterly amazed at these two sentences!!!!!!!!!!
