When learning of my living in Poland, a number of people from the U.S. wondered why Poland. Well, that is what motivated me to write about my activities not only as an academician, but as an individual from the U.S. living in a country where most Americans don’t consider as their first choice. So you can expect blogs about public transportation, grocery shopping, walking, talking to people in EngPol (my created word for part English-Polish language), hand gestures when all communications fail, flat/apartment living, going out to eat, and so on. Having traveled and lived in places such as France, Hungary, Japan, UK, to name some I can fairly say Poland has just as much or even more, depending on your perspective, to experience. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the show!
