Generally Polish people and Poland seemed nice in person but ever since I found this forum after the first trip I've been left with the same sour taste in my mouth as I do when I'm in Germany, Denmark Holland or any other radical anti-cultural country.
Poland happens to be like this because they dont have to deal with a multi-cultural society that fails to integrate or idiots that call them "radical anti-cultrual" - how many mosques are there in Germany, Denmark and the UK? I suppose you have Catholic churches all over the place in Iran?
"tell me about it" like polite people would do. If this was England, Holland or Denmark people's attitude would be more like --- "you're an arab" --- "you're a muslim" --- "you're unwanted". Which of course is completely untrue as we're Zoroastrians and not Muslim and we're Persians not Arabs.
Yep and Pakistanis were Indian - you are now Iranians, not Persians, Iranians are generally considered arabs, but I can call you asian if you prefer? - and who can blame someone for thinking you're Muslim when its called "the Islamic Republic of Iran" A place where other religions are not exactly tolerated.
Not having a go, just putting you straight, if Europeans acted in their guests countries how they (the ones from developing countries) act in ours, you could be sure they'd get very different treatment, so before you go flaming that we are this and that...think for a moment why your average person is becoming less tolerent?
Go back to Poland a few years time when its flooded with foreigners and they're no longer intrigued by you..but just consider you another unwanted intruder.
probably does not know that Darius is a typical Persian
Technically its not, its orgins are Mede and the reason it might be popular in Poland is because its a biblical name, so you can same that a lot of the biblical names have some Babylonian connection (this a place that no longer exists under that name a bit like Persia). Just the same as Jacob, Matthew, David, Luke, David are all Jewish one could say most if not all Polish boys have varients of Jewish names :D
You're right As I mentioned earlier we prefer the word Persian which it's been for thousands of years over Iranian.
I prefer the word English, but that doesnt stop people calling me British :D
So many negative things to say about our intolerence in Europe, which is slighty rich coming off someone whose country is run by a nazi who denies the fact the millions of people were murdered in camps in WWII, whose people have television sensored and public hangings are still easy to find. Probably the reason you have so many hanging around Calis trying to sneak into trucks bound for my Island.
21, lived in several Western Countries...plus 4 other countries, you stays must have been short.
