Really, that's all? Do you remember his name? I was thinking it would be 5 times that...is Poland/Warsaw still a cheap place to get around?
pretty cheap busses and taxis too.. from center of town to airport 15 - 20 min ride I think was between $6-$8

yes .. this was from the intercontinental which is right next to central bus station which is a block from ghetto (or what remains which is basically nothing) there is a pita place, another restaurant called Rambam and very small kosher grocery next to the big shul which is also 3 minute walk from the intercontinental .. so all that was in a few minute walk from each other..

Nice! So when getting into a cab at the airport...where do I tell them to take me (what exact words/street name so they understand)?

when i was there we paid 9 zloty for a day pass for buses and trams
when u ride the bus they have a similar system to the MTA where u insert ur ticket into a machine...... except that they have a machine by all the doors and i realized we were the only ones paying  ::)
no wonder Europe is broke
we stayed at a hotel called something like Airport Hotel which is actually like an american 3* hotel for around $55 (thank u priceline)
and very small kosher grocery next to the big shul
+1 the only thing i saw was frozen challa and israeli chocolate bars
and while i was there the assistant rabbi tried to recruit me for the new kollel

I think I'm going to go with a driver for the day...I sent out a few emails and will call a driver the Chabad Rabbi recommended...he said to call back and his english sounded decent...

@ E: the bus ride you mentioned, isn't really cheap.

I stayed @ the castle inn, which is a cute cheap place.
