Our trip down south has been great so far. The Malbork castle was beautiful as you can tell from former posts. Unfortunately they only give you access to a few of the rooms inside, the rest of the courtyard has souvenir shops and restaurants. Boo.
The following night we stayed in Mława, the city where Matt’s mom was born. A small pretty city with a large central park. Matt hadn’t visited this town since he was about 8 years old.
Next, Warsaw. We spent 2 days in the “fan zone”, a place designated for broadcasting the opening match of the Euro2012 football match. Millions of people painted in red and white partied and cheered in the city centre. What a gong show. Matt lost his phone and is now the proud owner of the new Samsung Note. It’s pretty darn cool, more of a space age computer than phone.
We’re on our way to Krakow. We’ve stopped in a tiny town on the outskirts for beer, WIFI, the football match and the best Polish food so far.
The lightest soup is called Flaki. It tastes like a fantastic chicken noodle soup but instead of noodles it’s tripe.
The light red soup is tomato soup with about a liter of heavy cream per cup.
The dark red soup is beet broth loaded with spices.
The tube is a meat croquette. Deep fried of course.
