Is Poland worth visiting?

I think the important thing is if the song (or book, film...) was made for your countrymen or for foreigners.

I had not thought of it that way, but yes. That makes sense. Now you have me curious and I will probably look up those other songs. However, I'll never know what it is they said. I only know a few words in Polish.

As for your English....it is very good. Any little imperfection adds charm. I love accents. And I especially love Polish accents. How cool that you want to share your country and life with English-speaking people and have made a song in our language. And it is nice for us to hear that you are Polish, not English, not American. :-D

I sent the video to many of my friends and everyone was very positive. In fact, a sociology professor with a PhD from Alabama who is also a musician enjoyed the slide guitar. He has also expressed the thought that maybe he will visit Poland one day. See? It has had a good effect.

I know quite a lot of people who are really good in English, and maybe we try together to translate few songs into English :) They are often bittersweet. For example the famous phrase from "Warsaw" is: "Green Żoliborz, fu**** Żoliborz (let's say "bloody" :)) is blossoming on the trees and bushes" - as a confession of love to the hometown. Żoliborz is a quarter of Warsaw.

It could be good exercise to do such translation :)

And I especially love Polish accents.

That's great for me what you say. I never expected that my faults could have any charm :D Thank you!!!
If somebody of your friend arrive to Poland because of Mateo's slide guitar, it would be something :) They are welcome, I hope they will not be disappointed with Poland!

PS. Almost 15 years ago an Englishman - friend of my relative living in England - visited us. Dave was abroad only once in life - in Egypt. Poland was his second experience of such kind. And I think it was stronger :) But positive too. He was shocked that he could see many stars - it was impossible in industried central England.

I'll try to write more tomorrow. Have a good day!

You forgot the exclamation marks.
Now, I feel sorry for myself that I didn't see any of that on my last visit.
