Bundled up, but still cold. We were happy to get to the pub.
Winter travels in Eastern Europe – Dear Friends in Wroclaw, Poland
We drove our car 3,300 km from Minsk, Belarus where we are teaching to see the cities, Christmas markets and quiet snow covered countryside of Belarus, Poland, Czech Republic and eastern Germany.
We ended our trip in Wroclaw, Poland (pronounced Vrotslav) and spent two nights with good friends Andrey and Ola. Their new apartment is cozy with a great view of the city skyline. (We stayed with them twice when they lived in Vilnius.) They cook good meals and taught us to play a game called Lines that helps people understand how difficult it was to get goods in soviet times. Ola went with us on a Free Walking Tour of the old town. It was freezing! But such a beautiful old town and many amazing sculptures everywhere. We stopped at a church that proudly displayed hundreds of nativity scenes with moving parts and many garish lights that filled an entire room. We were with a fun group from Northern Ireland. We ended up at the pub afterward with them for a few locally crafted beers.
