Did we mention we were coming to Poland? After the disappointment of our last helpx and some good final days in Italy we went home only to find that going back to my house felt all wrong. It was too big and felt like a backward step so we’ve put everything in motion to get it on the market, bought a car and done some house hunting. We achieved quite a lot in two weeks. But now we’re in Warsaw.
We’d already arranged our helpx in Zabuze, which is a couple of hours west of here, and we’d organised accommodation in Warsaw, so we decided we might as well go ahead. So far Warsaw is lovely. It has an extensive and very attractive old town that has actually been reconstructed since the war as 90% of the city was destroyed. Today we walked around soaking up the atmosphere, had a Polish lunch of soup, herring, dumplings and pork and found some dancing fountains by the river. All very satisfactory.
Marie Curie’s discoveries.
Tomorrow we’re planning on visiting a couple of museums and learning more about the history of the city.
