    I am a Spain supporter although I have a hunch that Germany would be a tough fight, real good young talent.

    Funny tidbit about this.
    Poland was choosing the Euro 2012 theme song..
    So they decided to have a vote...
    A sort of live voting contest (TV)

    Now here was a group of grannies from a village... some of them nuns .. all very devout..
    that decided to enter the competition as a lark.
    Singing a song.. dressed up as Nuns.. (all of them) ..
    So.. a group of Fat Village Grannies dressed up as nuns ...
    and Much to the Horror of most Football fans (who didn't vote in large numbers.. whereas the villagers did)
    THEY WON!!!!!!!!!

    The organizers were Horrified!!
    They didn't know what to do.. after all these grannies had won fair and square!!!
    But the last thing Poland needed was a group of fat village nun-grannies representing them to the world!
    The whole country was divided. :)

    Finally.. they came to a solution: This song became the Theme song for the Polish Team.. and not the Euro 2012 Theme :)

    Luciffer I am expecting some pictures of these beautiful cities. Even more inquisitive for the photographs you must have taken in these cities. I have heard that Krakow (sp.?) has more night clubs than any other place on earth.

    Funny.. but after Poland joined the EU.. there was a flight of labor away from Poland to countries like the UK where the pay was far higher..
    So when Poland started building these stadiums (or renovating them completely)
    they were massively short of labor...

    So.. at one time they had as many as 30K Indian laborers over there building these :)
