Other remarks:

Stryków north of Łódż was for many years the point at which the A1 motorway closed, you had to come off and use back roads and usually the place got blocked with cars for that reason. They will be happy that since 2012 the motorway now goes past them and their lives have gone back to normal. This documents the time when Stryków was placed “on the map” for about 5 or 6 years while we all waited for the road to finish. The backroads I show, including the secret cut through I show here, are all still there but much nicer now as they are not oversubscribed any more.

Quote of the clip: “There were a lot of hedgehogs there when human beings first arrived in this place, and so they called it “the place of the hedgehogs”, or “Jeżów”, in Polish.”
