The Polish House

This is a house just in the street besides my house. It is called the Polish house. There is nothing Polish to the house itself. But it is inhabited by Polish people. All though the crisis starts to take it's toll more and more, there are still a lot of Polish people around. And some of them live in this house. When you pass by you hear Polish sounds and different food smells.
Of all immigrants and foreign workers the Polish are the ones you hardly notice. I think they really just come to work quietly and leave quietly.

The house is beautiful! My great grandparents came here from Poland, in fact my name before I was married was Polish and always a challenge for others to pronounce and spell!

I live opposite a Polish church and have some serious trouble parking my car when the church opens :)

The houses on this street, especially the "Polish" house, have a lot of frontage width. Here in America, we tend to think that houses in the Netherlands are all very narrow at the front, like only 3 meters or even less, and then long (deep) and high (3 or 4 levels).

By the way, altho I was born in America and my faith is Greek, I am 100% Polish by ancestry. Ja jestem polakom. (I'm a Pole.)
