Early Polish Mag - Part 1

Polish people have had a long settlement history in New Zealand beginning with the second and third voyages here of Captain James Cook.

Returns

As I walked through the terminal in Auckland airport a wave of sadness hit me. It was unlike anything I’ve felt before, when I always knew I’d come back to ‘home’.

The costs, organisation and responsibility of the future ahead were inexistent.

'Girls from Syberia' by Anna Herbich

There 10 dramatic stories of  young women begins in a  very similar  young way with the banging at the door, few minutes to pack  and a long journey by catlle trains into the unknown. Janina, Stefania, Danuta, Alina, Natalia, Danuta, Weronika, Grażyna, Barbara, Zdzisława at the beginning of their young life were taken by the Soviets  to Siberia only becuase they were born Polish.

The potato is a very common vegetable. It has two monuments in Poland in Biesikierz and Poznań.  To use it instead of  paper for a letter or email is rather an unusual idea. A 24 year old from USA created 'potato post'. He is sending birthday, wedding greetings on a big or an average potato. On the large one he can fit 140 sign on the average 100 signs(price $9.99 and 7.99).
