    Oh, do not call it Eastern Europe. I once made that mistake and received a long lecture on the subject by a Polish friend. icon_razz.gif

    I have a friend who is Polish (born in Poland, my age and goes back to visit his family every summer) and he agrees that it is NOT Eastern Europe. But he does agree that the country my family is from (which borders Poland to the east) IS Eastern Europe... I personally could see it either way for Poland itself, but I guess the people from there see it much differently.
