streetwaves day two: the forest

Day two of the Streetwaves festival was held entirely in the woods of Oliwa - a district in Gdańsk. The location was a perfect contradiction to day one of Streetwaves, the vicinity massive Falowce. To summarize the day: walking the woods, listening to live music both in concerts and in silent disco mode (that was truly amazing!), eating delicious vegan treats and drinking specialty coffee. Perfect closure to a perfect two day vacation. Also a note: did not bring my camera, all the shots come from my cellphone, I apologize for quality!

streetwaves day one: falowce

For the first time since Barcelona I went away just for leisure. I took a train to Warsaw to drop Tosia off, and to drive all the way up to Gdańsk on the Polish seaside. We made the effort to travel so far to take part in an amazing Streetwaves festival, taking place annually around neighborhoods of Gdańsk. For day one of the festival, the organizers chose Przymorze ("Seaside"), a neighborhood of Falowce, enormous blocks of flats from the '60s and '70s, that stretch as long as 860m! It was an amazing day of walking around the neighborhood, taking part in various happenings, from exhibitions and installations to beach concerts at night. Devoting this post to Przymorze and those amazing buildings!
