Subject: Re: This can happen to you ... driving in Texas
Hi! I'm sorry if I've been misinterpreted. What I meant by the conditions was the living standards of the people. We have thoroughly enjoyed our visits to the former communist countries. What I meant was the conditions of the buildings, of the people lives, clothing etc. None of it was meant to reflect on the people. They have always been friendly as we communicate in broken English, German or in gestures. A funny story though, 2 years ago we were going from Poland to Slovakia and the traffic was jammed at the border crossing. It turned out that the crossing guards had all decided to go out to lunch together and closed the border for lunch. alan
