This is not America. No?

With each successive year, Poland looks physically less and less like a communist backwater and more and more like the United States. I am continually drawn to the semblance. Is this Ohio? Are we in Wisconsin? No, this is ul. Karczunkowska. The continental climate, the overhead power lines and telephone cables, the roadside advertisements, the new housing, the vegetation and the landscape all make me think of America.

More of my pics showing Poland looking like a mid-western state here.

Funny - I've been thinking the exact same thing recently. If I ever get a minute to sit down and blog, I will expand on this.
