Gdansk


I visited there in the mid 90s. Does it still have that burgeoning services industry?

Lodz is not bad.
I heard that Kielce and Radom are not so nice.
Warsaw is ok. It isn`t a bad place and seems kind of mellow if you travel by tram.

Really mellow at 6.30 am travelling to your Business English class in mid Jan with the floor covered in ice, mud and grime or on the packed 4-5pm trams I'm sure.

Rush hour, yes. I wasn`t thinking of that.
I remember the summer. Some people don`t use deoderant.
Open windows only help so much.

I find living 40km outside of Wroclaw to be perfect. Just close enough to the city and far enough to avoid traffic and city problems.

City problems in Wroclaw? There are only 630,000 people living in the city proper.

If I lived in Wroclaw I'd want to be smack in the middle of the center because that's where I'd have to go to work most days anyway. And that's were I'd want to be to go out in the evenings.

People waste so much of their lives on those daily 40, 80 even 100km daily commutes. It's one of the reasons I don't want to work back in the USA; it's even worse there.

You find it easy to get into Krakow from 40km out? Tram probably doesn't run that far but maybe you have something like SKM to run into town?


Yeh, Myslenice is a big enough town that there are 3 or 4 buses an hour to Krakow taking about 40 minutes one way.

I've gotta say I'd recommend the town and the school I'm working for. Shame that there's often a haze of pollution here.

Thanks, that's a good example of solid information from someone walking the walk.

Appreciate the info!
