Here, the "Old Town Square" at its lighting at night, is the most beautiful that I have seen. Just outside of the Square, is the University. Between the University and the Square, some of the most amazing, pubs, nightclubs, and oh yes some very delicious and cheep food. The food here is as good as Cechy! There is to be a music festival in mid September that I am told that I should not miss. Maybe, I will make it back for it! Wroclaw, river walk includes a chain off connected Islands, with historical points of interest as well as a city park in between them
Went to see what they called the Panorama Ractawicka. This is a circular building with a 360 degree picture painted on it of one of Poland's more famous battles. This Pamorama, is one of about six that are throughout Europe. Now on my list, of things I have to see, is the Panorama in Belgium, Napoleon's, Battle at Waterloo.
For the most part I spent most of my days around the Square and the University. Found the Greatest student milk bar, Brasila, and a great self surve Buffet place a couple of blocks away. During the days, I would pop into this little student bar, Kalogrodek. This turns out to be a favorite hangout for Left wing activists and followers as well as backpackers.
Well, I am a backpacker, I am left handed, and to a friend back home, Ned! a lot more left leaning then the old conservative that he makes me out nto be.. Hum-mm... I am living out my dream, here in Europe, whilst you my friend... are still following the crowd.
I meet with Marta, who was in Wroclaw to see her tutor. She is planing on going to the University in October and is now studying for her entrance exams in mid September. So we had a chance to meet at Kalogrodek's for a few beers and the afternoon chatting, until I walked her to the train station and sending her back home and to her studies. Seems like I am always seeing this girl off to somewhere and saying goodbye.
I have finally got my new camera figured out and will be able to start posting night pictures. Something the old camera just wont do.
I am off to Germany to get my prescriptions for my blood pressure filled for the next few months, then back to Prague, to finalize some details regarding my school in October, then off again for more travel. I still want to make my way through the Ukraine and down to the Black Sea.
