    Dear Piotr,


    Do you spend much time in Poland? I wish I could spend more time there, even though my Polish is non existent and my German (other than English the most useful common language) not much better. Even in rural France I have good Polish friends; and I remember with affection a Polish girlfriend from my university days. Her parent were married in 1939 and separated shortly afterwards. When they met again in London in 1947 -- one getting on a bus, and the other getting off it -- each had thought the other was dead. My girlfriend was born very nearly nine months to the day afterwards. Where are you now, Ekaterina Barbara Irena?

    Or to quote a Polish friend of someone I knew in Bristol, "We are one people." I'm a Cornishman, incidentally...

    Na zdrowie!

    Thanks for replay. Two times every year I am going to Poland. Can't wait this year as going there with camera now, so planing to do a lot of pictures!! As I am from the most beautiful part of that country in my opinion "Warmia i Mazury" we call it!! Check it on internet. So exited about it.
    BTW nice story in Your post!

    Ah, well: in the 18th century my wife's several-times-great grandfather left Koenigsberg. Or Kaliningrad.

    As I say: "We are one people".

    Looking forward to your pictures of Warmia i Mazury.

    Na zdrowie,
