Noticeable things about Poland

Some things that are noticeable about Poland:

  • The shower in the hotel is a 10.
  • They really do sit in the dark.
  • You have to bring your own coffee cup to work (there are no paper cups).
  • In meetings they talk softly and slowly.
  • The are no women on our floor or in our meetings (except Shirley).
  • We have seen no police or soldiers (uniforms) anywhere on the streets.
  • Stuff is quite inexpensive (compared to Israel).
  • They don't serve tap water in restaurants.
  • Wifi costs money, but internet with a cable is free in the hotel.
  • The trees look sad.
  • Polish sounds a lot like Russian (maybe it is).
  • If the airline loses your luggage you must ask for an overnight bag of goodies (if you don't ask you won't get one).
  • There is construction everywhere (especially on the roads).
  • Poles are polite.
  • There are lots and lots of churches.
  • There is always (in Europe) an Ikea on the way from the airport.
  • There is a deep love for multiple exclamation marks !!!!!!
