Poland is awesome

Hi there.

What do you know about Poland?

Yes, vodka. What else? Polar bears. No. Issues with screwing in lightbulbs? Hardly.

This is what you need to know: Poland is awesome.

Trust me on this. I've lived here for twenty-four years. And I haven't fallen out from under a magpie's tail, either. What? Oh. That's a Polish idiom. It means I'm not some clueless person who lives under a rock.

"Sroce spod ogona nie wypadł"

I've lived abroad, too. Four years in Dublin, and that was back in yonder days when Irish people didn't know what a Pole looked like. I've been to the States multiple times. I've seen Paris, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, London, Prague, Toronto, Chicago, Las Vegas, I've even been to the frickin' Galapagos Islands. And you know what?

I still think Poland is as awesome as all of those places put together.

And I'm going to prove it to you.

Watch this space.
