Other remarks:

As many reading this will know, I went on to do a load of driving videos, but this was one of the earliest attempts, showing the road between Czarnków and Szamotuły in -6 degree cold and snow everywhere. Very typical Polish road scenery.

Originally it contained a musical backing track with several pieces that did not obscure my commentary, however it was an early copyright claim and so it had to be replaced by a new soundtrack which still produced a copyright claim after the next goalposts change, so I lost by better audio and am left with no advantage to having a piece called “Galactic Time” by Aalborg Ambient Soundtracks in place of my usual vibrant commentary. Does anyone wonder why I have mainly no music on my later videos?

Other remarks:

A litte dark and atmospheric, a reminder of how my vsits to Czarna Hanka hotel in Czarnkow used to be when I used to be the auditor of a nearby noted factory.
It demonstrates the use of fizzy orange flavoured vitamin pills. This occasioned the sarcasm of some commentators ho pretended that they did not have them in their own countries, and were amazed by them.
