Resided in Poland for several years (looking back, my personal opinions.)

My family and I resided in Poland for several years. We relocated back to America. This was due to the Revolution of 1981. We found the Poles to be cultured, polite and the environment to be safe. In fact, back then, we often ambulated in the city at 2:00 - 4:00 A.M.

Further, each year, for decades I have drove an iron horse from coast to coast in America. In cities, all along the way, local mainstream papers would have their pages full of black crime. This type of news never made national news (as in the Zimmerman case). Poland doesn't have this horrendous danger. In terms of safety, in rates somewhere similar to Montana.

The Poles were well dressed. Over all, the average Pole was far more cultured in attire than the John/Jane Doe of the US.

As for schools, one doesn't have the dangerous drug infested, intellectually challenged problems that plague the integrated public schools of the America south. Schools, in numerous regions are on par with those of American/ France/ England. In fact, in subjects, such as math, Poles are more advanced.

On the negative side there's the road system. As for the political system, it's bad. However, it's not as corrupt as, say, Washington.

The family structure is more adequate, in many ways than that of the West. For example, 55% of Americans are divorced. The number for Poles oscillates around 15%. Families in turmoil are those with members laboring in say London.

As for weather, it's better than European states north of the Baltic Sea. The summers are not like Florida's unbearable heat and you don't have London's gloom. It's somewhere similar to our heat-pump states.

The language issue might be of concern for you. Most Warsavians can function in more than one language. The intellectuals often master four, or more. The average Jan Kowalski knows some English, or French.

How do I know these things? Well, I have both American and European university educations. Moreover, I have resided on four (4) continents.

I wish you happiness. Warsaw should provide you with many happy memories.

You have an American university education and yet your use of English is odd ?
How long did you spend in America altogether ?

Merged:

In some ways reading stuff like this reminds me of Poland and how the people are in it:



I mean they dont even clean dog **** on the streets and in some coastal places or near baltic sea the dog **** seems into water or into the sea or lakes and sewage. And that snot mentioning piles of trash and plastic in such towns that exist in Poland.

This is from the 1800s how London used to be. In Poland for instance today at places near the baltic coast there is dog **** all over the ground and trash everywhere. People even in Warsaw like in old town throw out dirty water like sewage water or what they use to clearn the shop floors to the drains. Some of these places dont even have their own bathrooms like the 24hr market carefour in old town warsaw as well. Anyone beside me see parallells here and are susprised there are not cholerra outbreaks in today's poland?
