Warsaw is sunny and things are good. The folks here in the office are really interesting to talk to, which is great cos I’m trying to improve their conversation ability. The office is pleasantly air-conditioned – something that will be all the more important if tomorrow is the predicted 30 degrees! I hope that everyone is having a good summer.
Off back to work,
Am now living with Ruth in Warsaw and I will be working with her firm as an Business English teacher for the next few weeks. Zakopane was nice but I decided to change plans for various reasons. Warsaw is great and I am looking forward to starting work tomorrow. Weather here is pretty nice. Photos have turned out pretty good so far – more to follow soon. Am looking forward to more games of a game called Fluxx: ever changing rules make card games a bit more exciting!
Hey Hey everyone, staying in Krakow tonight and we are planning a relaxing weekend of beers and exploring the town. Back up in Zakopane I am staying here. The first week was amazing, the kids were great and it will be great teaching them for another 5 days. Off now to enjoy Krakow, more someday soon.
Above Morskie Oko and 8km from the road is Czarny Staw. It was amazing to see but we had to go fast fast fast off the mountain to escape lightning and rain!
After the 20km walk we saw this view from the bus. (taken in a hurry!)
Arrived yesterday morning after an overnight train – it took well longer than the train that we could have got during the day (and all things considered I think that we could have been here days ago at the same price if we had organised it ourselves). Now that we are here though it is really nice. Mountains look amazing, perhaps some photos will follow tomorrow (I forgot the “essential” iPod and cable and camera and cable, they are all in my room at school). Kids are amazing, Polish young folk being well brought up and interesting to teach. I am sharing a room with Ian (and the Polish translations for Ian and Jonathan are both Ian). Things are good. Weather has been rainy and although it may be thundery later we are expecting a nice few days to come. Classes are 3*45mins per day and then chatting to the kids as much as possible as they go about their routines. Yey for Dave now being in America – I hope that is fun. I now know what long-haul feels like. Anyway, must be off. Meeting our walking train back in a bit.
