Thanksgiving 2014

Thanksgiving 2014 was a new experience for me.  My first Thanksgiving in Poland.  Of course, here it is not a holiday.  Just another work day for everyone.  But, we made it a holiday of sorts anyway.

Saturday reflections........

It is Saturday, November 22, 2014.  We have now been in Poland a bit over a week.  For Alicja, it is home and a strong feeling of happiness.  She is now near her parents and brother and son.  For me, it is still a matter of cultural and geographical adjustment.  I am, of course, very far from my daughters and grandsons; but; thanks to the technological wonders of facetime and skype, we can communicate quite well.  I remember when I was in the Navy during the Vietnam conflict and a letter home would take seven days to arrive.  Things have certainly changed.

Phones and coffee and darkness.........

Thursday, November 20, 2014

More progress in my transition to life in Poland.   On Tuesday, we went to the cell phone place and got phones for each of us.  T-Mobile because of the price.  Nothing fancy, but functional.  Of course, Alicja’s started ringing as soon as two of her friends learned her number (that figure multiplies exponentially, you know).  Mine, on the other hand, has remained silent.  But, at least I have one.
