Thats right, I found a decent computer cafe here in poland, so I'll be able to talk once every couple of days with all of yall. Seeing as this is probably my last trip to poland, I've decided to make a travel journal of all my experiances and sights. I'll be writing them as they happen in a notebook, and then I'll transfer them by hand on the computer. So, away we go! Entry #1 So its the end of my first real day in Poland, and I need to say, time travel is a real drag. I can't sleep normally, but I'm sure I'll adjust soon. Everything is exactly the same as I remember it, including the farm, my grandparents, my entire family here in Poland, and just about everything else. With the exception of one major thing: Emo has landed in Europe, and its name is Taco Stand. That can't be a good sign... But yeah, its all good so far =) Maps Entry #2 I've decided to make this entry a more politically charged one the the rest. I really need to talk about poland economically, because I really nede to get it out. First of all, young people have no incentive to stay. They get payed roughly a buck an hour for a job that would pay in Canada for 16 dollars a hour. Just like in post-WWII Russia, Poland has developed a second illegal economy on small markets called "targs". The reason that this is illegal is that 90% of the goods there are stolen from other countries. Several puppies are sold in a tiny cage, meat and fruit are sold on shit covered tables, dogs and other animals getting run over are common place, policemen take part in buying and helping it grow, this sight is one of the many culture shorcks that I'm sure I'l experiance throughout this trip. Maps more entries to come soon.... BTW, if someone could put this under an apartment block or whatever, that would be nice.
