Tour of the town...in the rain
12.06.2005 15 °C
14:00 I finally rouse myself out of bed, just in time for lunch, broth with noodles followed by fried chicken with potatoes. There is no chance of anyone ever coming to Poland just for the food.
After lunch the mother asks / insists that one of the daughters (there are 5) takes me around the town and shows me where everything is. I spend the next 45 minutes dutifuuly following her around the town (the castle, the park, the shops etc.) while trying not to get too wet as it is completely peeing it down. I wish the mother wasn't quite so enthusiastic, becuase this really could have waited till another, much sunnier, day.
When we get back to the house, I retire to my room for a while to read my new book about Cuba in the '90s, and have a nap. I am woken at 10:30 for dinner. I am so hungry I could eat a horse, but it turns out that lunch is the main meal of the day here, and dinner consists of not much more than bread, meat and cheese. Not really going to fill the black hole in my stomach but at least I should lose some wight while I'm here.
During and after dinner I am bombarded with questions about me, about England, and especially about schools in England. I finally crawl up to bed at midnight.
