Amber in Krakow

Spent a lovely morning in the market place at Rynik square, buying some amber (discovered green amber, very nice). Here are some photos. I am about to go and meet Beata who helped so much in putting together the geoBlogs geography online project. Hopefully after a cup of warming coffee we will come up with another great idea for next year's students. This time, though, I'll have to find someone who is wanting to do a similar kind of project with this great Polish school with me not in the classroom at the moment.

With mind implosion nearing: a night in Krakow

Well, after a gruelling 10 hours of conferencing I was ready for a night out in the city. After a few Becherovkas Tonic I excuse myself for any typos, but here are some great images from the night, including a wedding taking place at 10pm in the main market square of Krakow. Just fantastic.





Early morning Krakow, the conference begins

Some beautiful shots of Krakow this morning, a lovely crisp start to the day. Learned some Polish from the best languages teacher I have ever known, I think. I was overjoyed to hear that I have actually already got about 20% of Polish under my belt. More on that later. Click the photos for a larger version.
