Seeing the modern world with communist eyes: Polish man wakes from 19-year coma

“‘When I went into a coma there was only tea and vinegar in the shops, meat was rationed and huge petrol queues were everywhere,’ he told the Polish news channel TVN24.

‘Now I see people on the streets with cell phones and there are so many goods in the shops it makes my head spin. What amazes me is all these people who walk around with their mobile phones and never stop moaning – I’ve got nothing to complain about.'”
