Visiting Warsaw, Poland

This was my first destination in Poland and I wasn’t sure what to expect.  I think in my head I saw images of a still-communist country with buildings in disrepair and people that don’t speak any English.To my delight the complete opposite was true. The people were friendly, spoke English wonderfully and so much of the city was clean (very clean) and shiny.
