Baltic countries...they may be poor but they are rich in life! From the flat wooded land of Estonia to the mountains of Poland they have welcomed us in. Through their gratious hospitality we sang, danced, had "freshly made milk and cheese", got the low down on communistic life and the transitions since, shared coffee and pastries, wine, homebrew, shots of vodka, etc. As one of our new friends said, "payment is friendship".
Economy ex: minimum wage in Poland is 420 US dollars a month.
Slovakia is very poor and unkept. Czech Republic is richer with better infrastructure and friendlier people.
Weather is getting cold. Today is rain and 40s. Time to head south.
Thanks for being patient with the website. We have been having some problems downloading pictures.
