Re: US wants Poles to visit, spend lots of money

All hail European socialism!

They got their Marshall Plan aid 50 years later...

Re: US wants Poles to visit, spend lots of money

"I read that a couple of our members are considering moving back to the UK because of the now high cost of living here."

Does not surprise me...

We finished building are house in Poland right around the time dollar started heading South.

One of my partners is building a very similar place, on a same sized lot, only a few doors down, and his first estimate was nearly double of what we paid. Crazy. And it didnt take long at all.

PL has a great shot of becoming totally "European", hopefully this gov't wont f**k it up

Re: US wants Poles to visit, spend lots of money

Building and building labor costs are now ridiculously high.

Where do you have a place? Warsaw? Krakow?

Re: US wants Poles to visit, spend lots of money

Krakow. Mogilany area. I love spending Christams there.

You ever been?

Re: US wants Poles to visit, spend lots of money

No. Only the city itself. I'll look at a map later.

Any photographs to post?

Re: US wants Poles to visit, spend lots of money

The whole development has website, but to be honest, Im a little freaked out about posting it after all those discussions we had with the crazy militant types. Especially that one crazy London Arab. Am I too paranoid?

Re: US wants Poles to visit, spend lots of money

The number of people allowed to post have been cut right back since the Pakistani episode, but, you might be right. There might be a loon or two lurking. I'll do an internet search for the area later. If I can't find it I'll ask my wife to search using Polish.
