I didn't mean to express enthusiasm about the period, but about the opportunity to see for myself life during that period. As a typical ignorant American, I consider learning about the lives of Polish people during Communist times part of my necessary education.
I'm sure I can pick out which boy you mean, but I need to know in what aspect he is similar to you...do you mean physically, in attitude, in interests (chess), in style of dress, or what? Please clarify!
Of course I know that as a typical American, you can`t be enthusiastic about communism! I didn`t mean that.
