The Independence Day

f3310002

It’s been a while since my last post, so here I go again! I had a cold and afterward I was up to elbow. This is natural, that after a break every duties and things-to-do are overwhelming… Today is The Independence Day here in Poland. In Europe it is rather the day of the end of the IWW, but here we have special national day. Being in Warsaw, like me, is better to stay at home this day, ( especially  if you need to drive the car), because the traffic is very odd. Is difficult to reach another district. The number of  the patriotic demonstrations are quite huge, and we have a wide variety of these –  the nationalists have their demonstration, so  the leftists also want to have their own, and the official events, etc… In general, they’re not agressive or dangerous ( I think it is rather for teens and students ), and I must say Poland is very safe country, if compare with the US. The problem is rather that these events and marches , and marathon, and soldier’s parade, and concerts, are moving all day long and across the city. It cannot be in a one place, because is better to separate these radical  demonstrations. So the city is taken for many hours, and in addition every shops are closed, and this year wet and awful snow is falling. Very chilly day! Snow is melting and I am waiting for the football match Romania- Poland. It seems like big challenge!

New posts are coming, guys! See you soon!

  1. Here in Sweden we don´t even know which day the war ended. We haven´t been in neither of them. The last WW I must say Sweden was cowards, but Germany should destroy us in two days :D One of the reason that Germany not invaded Sweden was that Görings wife was from Sweden. Another thing I heard but don´t believe is that Sweden’s prie minister had persuaded Germany to Sweden had a large arsenal of weapons hahaha… Our first machine gun was invented 1941 or -43! :D

    • So you have this marvellous old architecture, like in Stockholm ot in other towns, like Ystad etc. Here in Warsaw almost every building was demolished, but during the IIWW. Luckily, they never destroyed Cracow. But Warsaw, it was really beautiful place before II WW – right now is not that splendid, although nice place to live :)
