I like travelling, family history and reading books. I am ESL teacher in High Junior school and at University.
GosiaI see your internet is now working again. Fingers crossedmine this morning is having no "stubborn" fits.Today here is our National Day - Australia Day.One person is named "Australian of the Year" and the choicefrom about 8 incredible candidates who were nominated - all worthy recipients of the award - I certainly approve of the final selection. He will for his 12 months term, do all facets of Australia proud. Having meet the General, I can assure you he is a "no nonsense" person and Australian to the soles of his boots!His acceptance speech would have had one section of the Australian community which still lives in the age of the "British Empire or Raj" choking on their cucumber sandwiches which I would have loved to have seen - ha ha.I hope that your much looking forward to London, the weather is favourable.The only thing I enjoyed during my constant rain visit to London were the excellent theatres where you could see the "creme de la creme" of the acting fraternity perform.I only wish that the Berlin Wall etc had been knocked downand that would have meant I could have seen Berlin, Warsaw etc. but no way was I going to take the chance of travelling in that zone at that time!CheersColin
I suppose you get used to it after a while but I found London to be a very noisy city, maybe even noisier than New York.
Andrew so far I can't compare but it is a crazy city and driving there is a nightmare
GosiaI don't know if you are an avid sport's follower like me.Well especially where tennis and golf are concerned, but Agnieszka Radwanska is doing Poland proud - the "pocket rocket" is into the semi-finals of the Australia Open, where she next will meet either the glamous screecher, Maria Sharapova or that ungracious Serena Williams.I'll be cheering for "Agie" as she is known by here.C'mon Poland as we say here.CheersColin
Agnieszka or "Agie" was born and lives in Krakow.I bet the sports people of Krakow are watching the TVon the tennis.Colin
Colin yes she was born in Cracow and as I know her grandfather sold all his valuable paintings to support her career. Ye like tennis but unluckily I don't have much time to watch it.
I am sure Grandpa has been paid for in full for his career start her career.Colin
Yes you are right , Her grandpa died a few years ago
