      Ahh, I see how it can save a dying conversation (the pun was purely accidental), I bet you also use it as an icebreaker with girls :p
      Oh well, we Poles often consider ourselves to be "unique" (surely not only Poles do that) so comparing us to any other country is a faux-pas. Although I don't mind if it's Czech Republic and Slovakia :p We are quite fond of these two countries, unlike with Russia (so never mistake Poland for a part of Russia), and personally, I like their litterature, sense of humour and how relaxed they are about their own countries and history (something you definitely can't say about Poles).

      Tur!
      Yay, you didn't throw the picture away yet! xD
      Sorry, it's not Latvia. The pic was taken in Lithuania, in a place that maaany years ago was Polish :3
      Also... KRÓWKI!!!

      Argentina is still pretty cool ^^ I went to Buenos Aires two weeks ago, it's huuuuuuuge! Awesome as well - although as in many other big cities, you also get some awful bits.

      ok, but in mean time, I can send you some sweets from Latvia :D
      or, beer originally placed in 2L bottle (very good for getting drunk) and yeah that`s about it....

      and I do like 5L plastic bottle option - it`s good for 30days, unless opened.

      when I asked, about trying to send it, they said : that, they will check at custom, and all glass and non-plastic bottles will be sent back, and I`ll be charged for expenses....so, truth to be told, I believe that your package soon will be back to you....

      I dont, honestly 10days shouldnt stale the beer...but it`s your call...I can send you 5L bottle of one beer.. it`s originally sold in plastic bottle..it`s pretty good like 5th on my list.
      (both 2L and 0.5L are in glass, so 5L is only option)

      that`s Bralis beer

      your PM again is full

      uh, I forgot to mention "Bralis" beer, it is cheapest of all ( still natural tho), and it selledi n 2L bottles, if you are looking for more than

      or I could send you all 3,

      Valmeirmuiza Dark&Light and Brengulis, I dont know if it`s a good idea to transport beer in plastic bottle... or yeah, I can pour it in glass one my self. :D

      so, inform me what you think of it

      In return, I would be glad, with some good quality Netherland beer :)

      We spoke to old and young people alike. It was pretty harsh and "gch" -like.

      And my friend's accent wasn't walloon at all. Both he and another friend went to school (before this year) in flemish, so speak it perfectly with the flemish accent, which is basically softer than the dutch accent.
      We discovered that the way they say "Hallo" sounds like "Hello" in a perfect Oxfordian accent.

      Didn't speak to anybody in Ijmuiden, though I was let through customs very quickly.

      Talking to people in Delft was horrible. They didn't understand my friend and he didn't understand them. My smattering of dutch didn't help so I had to speak English (which they luckily understood a little).

      There wasn't much to see though.

      I was coming back from Scotland and we had to stop some time (by belgian law we'd have had to have lessons if we got back before the end of school).

      I had to end up speaking English, even though I had a fluent Flemish speaker with me. The dutch accent there is incomprehensible!

      I was in both on Friday and thought you'd said you'd been/lived there. I was wrong though.

      Hello!
      I was up in your country the other day (down actually. Heh!) and I though I remembered you mentioning Ijmuiden and/or Delft.
      Have you (as in living there)?

      I know! I consider myself to be a responsible person that doesn't go around asking for being assaulted, but try telling that to my uncle and aunt, they go like "OMGOMGOMGTHEY'REGOINGTOKILLYA!" so I have to "tame" them a bit first :p No problems like that with my parents, but these guys need some working on first. Oh well, I'm going to spend 2 years here and I'm definitely going to travel so they'll just have to accept it ;)

      Yes, Poland will have to manage without me during the EC, hopefully the task won't be too difficult. I'd like to watch the games, but I'm not sure if they'll show them on tv over here... Gah, I can always try the internets.
      So far I'm mostly exploring the nearest city but I'd like to go to Buenos Aires before the uni starts, which will surely take a couple of days (at least). Also my family told me all sorts of creepy stories about young girls traveling alone through South-America and getting killed or raped or both so I guess I have to find someone to travel with me before they'll let me go somewhere further :p

      Oh right, I'll let you enjoy the very first place on "The Flattest Places on Earth"-list, but the pampa it still quite flat :D And it has armadillos!
      And yes, yes, I feel pretty special being the only South-American on TFF (and it's absolutely fabuluos to suddenly become a South-American after being Polish for over 20 years!), although I probably have yet to discover all the benefits of this unusual situation. What I'm going to study here (the uni hasn't begun yet) is Letras Hispánicas which is more or less Spanish and Latin-American literature. But I'll be studying it in Spanish, so it's almost like studying Spanish ;D So far I'm doing ok, no communication problems with the natives, although I'm still not fluent in Spanish. But it will come along, I'm sure, just give me a couple of weeks.

      Well, I'm close to a city which is definitely not empty but I 've heard that further to the south you actually have lots of uninhabited land (if you don't count cows, some wild horses and even further to the south - penguins). And it's quite flat over there (I've seen that from a plane), possibly as flat as the Netherlands : o

      Oh, the suspense! That's politics for you :p As for Norway, I guess it hasn't changed much since I left in the end of january. I can't be sure though, since I'm now roaming the vast pampas of Argentina, and that's quite a long way away. I might not be getting all the big news over here :3

      And now you made me like "netherlad" even more! xD
    19. Oddrun
      Oddrun
      Tuuuuuuuuuuuuurrrrrrrrr! What's up? How's the Pole-hunt in the Netherlands going? :3 (I wrote "Netherlads" first and thought I could call you a Netherlad from now on ^^)
