Hi everybody. I got back late Sunday from a very hectic week in Poland, Czech Republic, Austria and Bratislava in Slovakia. Will try to catch up with my other blogs that I follow and some I read but don't follow all the time. I flew on my own on the 20th (Sunday) from Shannon to Warsaw Modlin and was met by an old friend from childhood who now lives and works in Warsaw.
On the Monday we rode the underground and tram to Wola to visit the Warsaw Uprising Museum. Sorry about the photographs displaying the 2008 date. My digital camera is acting daft again. Here's a few photographs from the museum.

|Found this delightful picture of a cow taken during the Warsaw Uprising among the barricades. She was kept in the war zone for her milk, cheese and no doubt because she is beautiful.|

A photograph from the Jewish cemetery. A lot of the graves seem to be no longer tended by their loved one's. So many who lost their lives them selves during the Second World War. I found the experience very sad but incredibly peaceful.
Warsaw is a very modern and vibrant European city with great parks, museums, public transport and leaves fine tributes to it's dead and to all those who fought to save their country from Fascism. Yesterday I switched on the news to see conflicts in the Ukraine and Gaza. When will we learn to live a life in peace and harmony with each other? It's a crazy world. But a very beautiful one.
