I like travelling, family history and reading books. I am ESL teacher in High Junior school and at University.
GosiaPoland has had many trials and triumphs over the long years of history.Just look at musical composers - Chopin etc.I could listen to Chopin for hours on end - his music clears the brain.This modern stuff - Chopin must be spinning in his grave!But in 1980 Lech Walesa defied them all.The Peanut US President Jimmy Carter - what a joke he was!Probably never had a clue where Poland was!Leonid Brezhnev, the last really of the Stalinist mob and what a horrible person this individual was.But in 1980 there was one very influential person in power, the former Cardinal of Kracow - John Paul II. It was a case "lets get on with freedom and stuff the stupidity of East and West".I think the Government of then West Germany saw Lech as their savior also,as did the rest of the countries under Soviet dominance.Lech has already established his name in history.CheersColin ( Brisbane.
