More 'This is not America, no?' moments

More of those moments where the deep Warsaw exurbs takes on a distictly American character. Navigating around small town USA courtesy of GoogleMaps StreetView is a fascinating experience for me, as the country is so familiar. Only large cars and roadsigns give it away. Above: Nowa Wola. Below: Lesznowola. The owner of the roadside restaurant actually owns two Jeep Wagoneers.

Below: Podolszyn, and a view that's so un-American that the House Committee would have it blacklisted from appearing in Hollywood. This picture of a scene so typical of rural Poland in the 1970s, was taken today less than 20 miles from the centre of Warsaw. The sign says "Food-Industrial Shop".
