ENGLISH:
We ate a full breakfast and came out to explore the city. On the way to the town a friend of Ania from her art school joined us. Her name was also Ania.
Rivne was an interesting experience - we finally made a trip by troleybus, we were wandering around different parks and were eating ice cream for the first time in this year. We also went to a local market and bought some souvenirs. It was not snowing anymore, but still not warm enough to take off our coats. Rivne has got a lot of different monuments of writers, artist etc but also some of them have been left after the Soviet Union. To me the most interesting one was a monument called by locals "stomatologist" - it was a dragon with open mouth and a knight trying to kill him. Funny.
We came back home in the late afternoon. While eating the dinner, I got a wonderful message - my friend Kasia had got a baby - her name was Hanna!
For the dinner we had Ukrainian bitruit soup which reminded me of  Polish cabbage soup to be honest, but it was nice. Then we had an entree and a dessert. It was more than enough for Sarah`s stomach - it started aching her.
About 10:30 pm we went out to Laguna club. Something, what we had never experienced neither in Poland or especially in UK was the music there. We could listen to English, Ukrainian, Russian, Spanish, French and even Bollywood tracks. Sasha - Ania`s sister, is 19 and has got full of energy. She was constantly making us go to the dance floor which she hadn`t left until 3 am, when we went home.
The unlike things at the club were some people. Least, they weren`t drunken thugs but customer service. At first, the barman was pretending to not know English and did nothing to help us order drinks. Then there were girls moaning cos we accidently took their places at the bar. Why Ania`s family, friends, would never rude to us? In Poland if someone can see a stranger, he tries to help him. He wants him to have a good impression about his country. Here all the customer service was only moaning.
Oh well, the night was pretty good anyway.

POLSKI:
Zjadlysmy obfite sniadanie i wyruszylysmy na miasto. Po drodze dolaczyla do nas kolezanka Ani ze szkoly plastycznej - rowniez Ania.
Rivne bylo interesujacym doswiadczeniem - nareszcie mialysmy wycieczke trolejbusem, spacerowalysmy po parkach i jadlysmy lody pierwszy raz w tym roku. Poszlysmy takze na lokalny targ i kupilysmy pamiatki. Nie padal juz snieg, ale wciaz nie bylo wystarczajaco cieplo, zeby zdjac plaszcz. Rivne ma mnostwo roznych pomnikow - pisarzy, ale tez pozostalosci po Rosji Sowieciej. Mnie najbardziej przypadl do gustu pomnik zwany przez mieszkancow "stomatologiem" - byl to smok z otwarta paszcza i rycerz probujacy go ujarzmic. Zabawne.
Wrocilysmy do domu poznym popoludniem. Przy obiedzie zastala mnie radosna wiadomosc - moja serdeczna kolezanka Kasia urodzila coreczke - Hanie!
Na obiad byl ukrainski barszcz, co mi w smaku przypominalo polski kapusniak. Potem bylo jeszcze II danie i deser. Dla Sary zoladka to bylo za duzo, po prostu zaczal ja bolec.
Okolo 22:30 poszlysmy do klubu Laguna na impreze. Cos, czego nigdy nei doswiadczylysmy ani w Polsce, ani tym bardziej w Wielkiej Brytanii byla muzyka. Puszczali doslownie wszystko - kawalki angielskie, ukrainskie, rosyjskie, hiszpanskie, francuskie, a nawet Bollywood. Sasha - siostra Ani - ma 19 lat i niespozyte poklady energii. Ciagnela nas na parkiet, z ktorego nie zeszla do 3 nad ranem, kiedy wrocilysmy do domu.
To, co nie podobalo mi sie w tym klubie, to niektorzy ludzie. Bynajmniej, nie byli to pijani huligani, a przede wszystkim obsuga. Barman udawal najpierw, ze nie zna angielskiego, przez co utrudnil mi i Sarze zamowienie drinkow. Do tego panienki, ktrym rzekomo zajelysmy miejsce przy barze. Dlaczego an rodzina, ani przyjaciele Ani nigdy nie byli dla nas nieuprzejmi? Jesli ktos w Polsce widzi obcokrajowca, stara sie mu pomoc. Chce, zeby ten wyniosl dobre wrazenie o jego kraju. Tutaj cala obsluga klienta tylko narzekala.
No coz, noc i tak byla udana,.
