We ride the mountains of western ukraine. All the red shrubs are low bush blueberries sporting their fall colors– huge and sweet. The man in red is Przemek. Over the weeks we’ve traveled with him, he’s developed a character called Mr. Polish. It started because the locals couldn’t remember his name and referred to him as pan polska (polish man). Przemek is excellent at english and speaks nearly accent-free. He’s easy-going, bright and kind– a great guy to travel with. Mr. Polish speaks with a thick polish accent and a cunning wit. He’s arrogant and hilarious and we all enjoy him a whole lot.
