Warsaw

Hello… *crackle*…Testing, Testing… *crackle crackle*

Apparently, I have a blog stalker. Yes… little old me has my very own stalker, who trawls around the stuff I put on the internet, in case there is anything alarming in there to report!  Who Knew?!

*big shout out to stalker*

*helloooooooo!*

And on with the post…

Last weekend we went to Warsaw. Cold, but very beautiful, and somewhere I’d definitely return to. The history of the place was remarkable… there was an uprising during the Second World War, and the Polish people fought back against the Nazis. Long story short, the Nazis won and Hitler razed the place to the ground, with 85% of the city reduced to rubble. After the war ended, the Poles rebuilt their city, using old photographs and paintings as a blueprint.

I love that bit… it’s the ultimate ‘up yours’ gesture.

On my next visit, the Gestapo HQ is definitely on the list – it sounds amazing – and there’s also an exhibition that you go round blindfolded – to ‘see’ things as a blind person would. That sounds fab too. But for now, here are some pictures of the old town, including gratuitous shots of hot wine in the market place.

Bliss!

  1. Lovely photographs. My son was there a few years ago and he liked the place. A stalker – oh my, never had one of these before. Is it a male stalker or a female stalker? Hello anyway!!!
