  1. The Three Emperors' Corner - part four

    Good day to you all!

    As you can expect - the story of my homeland goes on, and this time - we're back in Cracov.



    The railway station you remember from part three, only this time we're not heading to the town square.
    This time I took another route to the more southern part of the city, the district of Kazimierz.

  2. A very bad day for servicing a verge watch (a story with a happy end)

    I've got to share a thought with you - it's not so bad to have a bad day. It gets much, much worse, when you don't know you're having one.
