btw: Poland

last month we were on a CzechRep vacation, and we crossed Poland in 2 minutes...

I was not sure that we can cross the borders here because maps.google indicates this route as a local route...

but in reality it is a main route so it should be thick yellow on the map...

By the way, is this a new route? It wasn't there when I was there in 2001 or 2002.

So what? You can cross the border anywhere.

But I suppose that when it is a road, not a path, only trucks can be banned from such crossings.

Stealing subtitles from others is against the law!

I'm trying to get some more knowledge of Polish... It's not an easy language, but it's not as hard as it looks at first, Hungarian, Estonian and Finnish seems harder to me.

Reading it is one thing, pronouncing it, is another.

Numerals seems to be not that hard to learn. Once you know the basic 1 - 10, the rest will follow. For instance, 3 = trzy. Thirteen = trzynascie. add "nascie" after 1 - 9, and you basically have 11 - 19. 2 = dwa. 20 = dwadziescia. Add 1 - 9 after it, and you have 21 - 29, like dwadziescia jeden. (21).

Grammar on the other hand, seems more complex.
