Podczas ferii wybraliśmy się na południe Polski. Czas trochę pozwiedzać rodzinny kraj. Plany na zwiedzanie były inne, jednak spontaniczność zwyciężyła. Bo jak tu się nie oprzeć wielkiemu napisowi “Żubry zapraszają”.
During the spring break, we went to the south of Poland. It’s time to explore a little the home country. The sightseeing plans were different, but the spontaneity won. Because how can you not resist the sign “Bisons invite you”.
I went outside a little upset. There were a lot of clouds and I was afraid I will miss the whole eclipse. Then I realized that clouds are a natural screen !!! I like the images a lot. They are different than typical solar eclipse photographs.
I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”
On Friday, February 28, the Way of the Cross passed through the streets of the New and Old Town of Warsaw, led by Cardinal Wyszyński. Thanks to the original audio recordings, it was possible to consider individual stations by listening to his voice.
On November 11th, 2019, Poland celebrated her 101st anniversary of independence from Russia, German and Austro-Hungarian, after 123 years. As Independence Day is for everybody so, everyone could find something interesting from traditional dances through classic cars to the Independence March.
On November 11, the Poles celebrated the hundredth anniversary of regaining Independence after 123 years of Russian, German and Austro-Hungarian annexation. On this occasion many events took place. In my report, I present images from four of them:
the Independence Run,
the national anthem singing on Piłsudski Square,
the Antifa march, which gathered about 70 people and
the Independence March in which over 250,000 people took part.
This post is for my friend who has Polish roots. This Polish tradition is a great fun for kids. On Holy Saturday, we prepare small baskets with different kind of food inside, from bread and meat to fruits and cake. The most important are salt and PAINTED eggs. And just painting eggs is the best fun for kids.
When baskets are ready we take them to church to bless.
