WE LOVE SOPOT

Lilou & John talk about their memories of Poland | We learn why Poland is so much better than Sweden SSR | Lilou reveals what she felt at Sopot beach

John: We went to Gdynia and Sopot in northern Poland in October. What did you think about it?

Lilou: I loved everything about the trip.

John: You are rarely that positive. There is always something that annoys you. Why was this trip so great?

Lilou: Everything went smooth and Poland is beautiful. The houses, the beach, the light, the harbor, the people. All beautiful. And I felt safe, completely safe.

John: Quite the opposite of Sweden then?

Lilou: Yes. We saw police officers every day. There were families outside after 8 o’clock in the evening. People were friendly and helpful.

John: Yes people stopped us in the street and wanted to talk.

Lilou: Yeah it was amazing. I was waiting for them to beg for money or ask for some kind of favor, but they never did. All they wanted was to make sure we had a good time in Poland.

John: You have been too long in Sweden.

Lilou: Yeah, I never realized a society like that could exist.

John: It makes me angry when I think about how much Swedish media lie about Poland all the time. When we went there I had expected things to be bad, and people to be aggressive and hostile, but on the contrary it was like coming to Paradise.

Lilou: Yeah, I mean, Polish women gave our children candy before we had even left the ferry. Not one single Swedish woman has given our kids candy. Except for me, that is.

John: I wonder what it is that the Poles have done to create this magnificent country. In Sweden I never feel safe, it is a country falling apart, and Poland is like a world beyond the event horizon. Everything was so tidy, no garbage, no litter, people seemed to take care of their country. Even the graffiti was tasteful! And they had warships in Gdynia harbor, like a natural part of society. In Sweden it seems that few people even care anymore. But when you, I and the kids strolled down the pier in Gdynia, I felt free for the first time in many years. By the way, what is it that you loved the most about Poland and the trip?

Lilou: Gdynia harbor and Sopot beach, where I felt I could breathe for the first time in many years.
