No, it’s too dangerous. People come up to you with blades and knives and try to take your things from you.

"I have to pay fine in Poland, over 1000 euro, otherwise embassy doesn’t want to give me passport. I stole a bicycle from a neighbor’s basement, some food, and an amplifier from a friend. That was in 2002. I got three years probation...my parole officer said it was OK if I go to Ireland. My parole officer retired young, and new, bloody thirsty officer came and 'couldn’t find my file'...said I didn’t meet requirements which was bullshit. If I had money for lawyer, I would win case."
