Vodka and Apple Juice: Travels of an Undiplomatic Wife in Poland - Jay Martin - Google книги

It seemed there were endless things to experience there, and certainly so much more than typical tourists seemed to do. Indeed, Poland seemed so underdone in the guidebook that I even wondered if the people who had written it had even been there.
