Today's 'Le Monde' has written that Poland has no motorways at all and it's infrastructure is disastrous...

Yes. It is shame. Sometimes roads opened befor christmas or holiday. For example: S5 in Bydgoszcz or S10 in Stargard Szczeciński.

Welcome to western journalism. You'd be surprised to see how often they still write about the "eastern bloc" in the papers. It's really a shame. I once said to my colleague I wanted to go to Poland, and he couldn't imagine that, he said his image of Poland was "gray, dark, poor and criminal".

I heard that Holland is a drug country and gays love to live there, but pedophilia? I didn't notice that.

Yeah, I think I've read about it one time in the Dutch media. Poland was the only economy that saw a GDP growth in 2009. Of course, I already knew this via other sources.

There is som truth in this. We all like to see the world in black/white, good/evil, but we all know the world is slightly different.
I think thatīs why when you hear about USA, dominating,stupid,fat and ignoring people, but ....with 200 million people!? So we all have these ideas of other countries but we just donīt think so long.

The funny (well, not really funny but paradoxal) thing is that Polish press sometimes pictures countries further east (Russia, Belarus) as grey, dark, poor and criminal and many people believe it. Plain stupid but well, stereotypes are stereotypes. And yeah, the Netherlands have a very bad image in conservative circles and very positive in youth/liberal circles mostly thanks to legal marihuana and gay marriages. Windmills and tulips somehow became less of the Dutch symbol recently

Nevermind, I guess this excellent map was not linked in this thread yet, it shows development of Polish motorways/highways from the 30s till now plus the roads being U/C at the moment and 99% likely to be completed by 2013. http://klszarak.org/stadiony/scc_a_s.swf
green - already in use at the given year
red - completed at the given year.
