empty shelves

I do remember communism in Poland as a beautiful time - time of my youth and first love... But it had its second face too - martial law of 1981. I remember the morning without Teleranek - a TV show everybody used to watch. I remember a lot of people were afraid of Soviet army coming to the country. And later - poverty. Empty shelves in shops - the only thing you could get was vinegar. I don't know how people get money and goods back then, because there was literally nothing. You could buy things by using coupons - a coupon for bread, sugar, chocolate etc.

But somehow everybody carried on. Under the counter - but somehow, we survived.
