Re: A Land of Opportunity Lures Poles Back Home

"Daily Tea Time begins promptly at 4 p.m. with proper cups, with saucers, and never mugs, with high quality biscuits (cookies) and cakes; plus strawberries (with cream) when in season."

Does anyone still do this (outside restaurants)? I thought it was at 3pm?

Re: A Land of Opportunity Lures Poles Back Home

By the way I was thinking the other day how few Polish voices I hear these days. The great stampede into the UK has been replaced by a mass exodus.

Re: A Land of Opportunity Lures Poles Back Home

The supply side of the labour market will start easing up in Poland - good news, we want to keep the Indians and Chinese out. Tusk signed treaties allowing up to 100,000 of each into Poland if the economy demanded it. Not a good idea to have mass non-European immigration.

Re: A Land of Opportunity Lures Poles Back Home

On our last visit to Poznan we saw many Chinese/Vietnamese, Indian/Pakistani and blacks already there. Although we haven't noticed them before.

Many of the problems in western Europe result from non-Euro migration. So it seems strange that Poland hasn't picked up on this.
