Poland!
Mood:  a-ok
I'm about half way thru Poland and it's still going ok. Riding thru small villages all day. I'm taking a direct route to the Ukraine so the place 's I pass thru are probably not used to seeing someone like me pas thru. I've learned the "good day" and "hello" etc. in Polish so that helps but ordering food is sometimes comedy. Everyone here is great so far and very helpful. The chance meetings to ask for directions has many times turned into coffe and cake time or a beer and a smoke and a cool visit. The rain has not been bad but even so when it get's too much I duck in somewhere and just meet more people. I'm doing good, the bike is still not giving me any problems so I hope it keeps going this well. I've loaded up some new pics, hope you like them.  Talk to next time from Ukrania.    Brian

Good pics man..... were you in a Polish bike race? My old DDR buddies.... hilarious. You know what the Ukraine is? It's a sitting duck, a road apple, Brian. The Ukraine is weak, it's feeble. I think it's time to put the hurt on the Ukraine.

Hey, ask around for my relatives. Zieman is Austrian, but my grandmother on my father's side is Polish. I don't know what Zieman means, it might get your ass kicked, so I wouldn't go tossing it around. I've decided to drink what ever the locals drink on your trip. Guess it's vodka?
