Today I did a Global Volunteers presentation at Pilgram House, a Unitarian-Universalist fellowship. Since my Global Volunteer experience is basically about Poland, I spoke most about Poland. I believe all learned more about "new" Poland, both through my presentation and then informal conversation afterwards. People are funny. One man sat down beside me and said, "I'm here to give you a bad time. You said there was a program in West virginia. You go there to teach English?" I explained the program there was home renovation with high school students and also some tutoring of GED students. He laughed and said his whole point was to give me a "bad time." This was a lovely way to spend a rainy Sunday morning.
