I get a lot of email from readers. I'd say that half of them are the "I know exactly what you're talking about, I have been there!" kind, and those are great. It can be a lonely place to enter a new country and feel like you're the first to do so. You're not! I promise! But sometimes it feels like it.... the other emails I get are often questions. Most of the questions are in the vein of... "my husband and I are thinking of moving to Poland can you tell me..." or "My wife and I are transplanting ourselves and our kids to Poland next year and plan on homeschooling, can we do it ...?" These are also great emails to receive because sometime our sanity is questioned by those around us. And yet, at least once a month I hear from people who are choosing to do just that and they want to end up here, in Poland So, you know, we're trendy. Always nice to be on the cutting edge of something. ;)
So, maybe some of you all have questions. I don't know. Maybe. Post away. I can't promise that I will answer all of them. But as for me, I often have questions for Poles/Poland. I wish I had a place to ask them all.
In the spirit of "going first" here are a few questions for my Polish, living in Poland, (or not, I guess), readers....
- What's with the crazy hair? (especially the whole, only one half of the head shaved)
- Why do they make the "L" drivers drive so slowly?!
- Why do so many people have their children sit in the front seat of the car and their spouse/other adult in the back? Isn't that dangerous?
There ya go. Curiosity. I've got lots more but we'll start slow.
