łódź

From last year's day trip to Lodz, polish third largest city.

spring in the mountains

Last April Antek, Dawid and I decided to go to the mountains for a spring sunrise. Not only we ran out of gas and had to push the car a few kilometers to the next pump, but we experienced one of the coldest times in the mountains ever. However, despite the cold, Babia Gora was beautiful as it always is.

downtown warsaw streets

Streets in downtown Warsaw are pretty much superhighways. With little space for pedestrians, cars totally took over 90% of the public space. You can walk for a mile along the main roads and not find a single crosswalk. All pedestrian traffic is pushed underground, through steep stairs and broken elevators. The temporary crosswalk in front of the Central train station became permanent after many months of protests. Still, high curbs make it extremely unfriendly for disabled. Hopefully the City will realize they need to focus on pedestrian accessibility and car usage discouragement.
