polish or portuguese?

i have been considering two volunteer/language combination programs for this summer, to either of the two aforementioned destinations. i can't really decide which one...my university will be offering an introduction portuguese class in the fall of 2007, and will not offer any polish, so i was thinking i would utilize the summer to study polish. in addition i have never studied a slavic language but i've studied french, spanish and italian, so i assumed portuguese would be easy to pick up on my own or something rather than a language so different to my ears as polish! at the same time...maybe it would make more sense to study portuguese since i already have much background and probably could make out some of the lexicon, syntax and semantics intuitively.

the portuguese program would be in brazil, and the polish would be in krakow. not sure if that might make a difference =P but i would absolutely appreciate your opinions/suggestions!

p.s. do any of you others also feel a wonderful sense of glowing pride when you express your love and knowledge of languages to others and they exclaim 'wow a polylingual, cool!' =) i love that it makes me feel as though i always end up connecting so much more deeply to others in a very subtle but profound way...
