immigrants in london

london, 01.02.2004 – Agnieszka (29) and Krzysztof (29) are a couple and came to London to get a bit closer to fulfilling their dream of owning a hostel in the Polish Karkonosze. Agniezka has a business visa and works legally as a cleaner. Her boyfriend Krzystof lives and works illegally as a builder in London. They are working long hours and 6 to 7 days a week. Sunday is the only day they have to spend some time together. Soon they´ll have saved enough money to buy a small piece of land to build a wood cabin on. Of all the people in the house they have lived there longest and afford the luxury of sharing a room just between the two of them.
