When Ewa came to America her first impression was that America was a big country with big cars and houses. Ewa came from Krakow, Poland. She came here because the University of Texas in San Antonio invited her to do a medical research project. Ewa came in the year 1982 bringing special things like her diploma, a dress she made by herself and some family photographs. She is the only one in her family that came to America and lived here. Whenever she has time she travels back to Poland in the summertime to visit her family members and friends. She met Zbigniew in America, he was Polish too.
