Poland

I forgot to mention it here, mostly because the details still aren't 100% solid yet, but I'm probably spending the month of May in Warsaw.

:eek:

Looks like the trip to Warsaw might only be two weeks. The good news is, now they're telling me a client in Helsinki might want me for the third week.

Ya know...? I'm okay with that!

I have safely arrived in Warsaw. Time to leave the hotel and explore!

Glad you made it safe and sound.

I've been here for four hours, and here are my random musings:

1. My cab driver from the airport tried to drive off without me paying.
2. FREE CRAB PUFFS...
3. Where? ...in the Executive Lounge (Pssst! I'm not an executive!)
4. I enjoyed some fine Greek food
5. The hotel I'm in has one of those clear glass elevators on the outside of the building. I shot this video:

That's all I've got for now. I'm six hours ahead of y'all, so even though it's the middle of the afternoon where you are, it's dark here. Good night!

The Prague muzak video was more funny, but that looks like a good view.

I was waiting for your "Oh man!!! I can't get back in. I forgot to pick up the key!"

I love this age of video. I remember talking with my grandparents for a very short phone conversation from Florida in the 50s and saying "It's like you are in the next room" and the reception was lousy. Your video was like we were right beside you.

Do more!!

I walked through a park today, and came up from the back side onto the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Here are some pictures from the park:

The last time I had a subpar meal in Europe, some bandits knocked me on the head and nearly robbed me of the memory. After tonight's disappointing dinner, I roamed the streets of Warsaw with wallet in hand, whistling Yankee Doodle hoping for a similar conclusion.

The menu said "Mushroom soup and roast duck with raspberry-stuffed tomatoes" but the biggest draw in their pitch was the exclusion of accurate adjectives. The soup resembled mushroom in that it was, in fact, brown. The consistency was what I imagine a pneumonia patient swallows with each gurgling breath. Based on the amount of fat on the duck, I'd guess they'd fed it the mushroom soup shortly before it was strangled that morning, a fate I would have welcomed had I not eagerly anticipated countering this culinary damage with some ice cream once the wait staff released me. Each bite, despite extensive chewing refused to separate into pieces small enough to comfortably swallow, and at the end more remained in my napkin than in my belly.

The croix de guerre was that I had to choke down this swill while listening to Rod Stewart belt out "Do You Think I'm Sexy?" No, Rod, no I do not, but I'll make you a deal - if you'll take me away from this horrible meal, I will introduce you to someone who does. No matter the cost.

Fortunately, the evening was not a total loss. I did manage to capture some Videos of Poland which I think you'll enjoy. Here they are.

Old Town right before sunset. Lots of humans and birds:

And Finally... FIRE!!!
