In the afternoon, I drove 2 ½ hours with the event organizers to the village of Kazimierz Dolny, The last 10 minutes took us over narrow cobblestone streets, through a village with fascinating architecture, to the hotel reserved for our retreat.
Dinner was an adventure! The menus were written in Polish, so we did our best to figure out what we’d be eating. I ordered two things: zupa webierska – gulaszowa and salatka z pornidorow i karczochow. Translation: goulash soup and artichoke salad.
Later in my room, I turned on the TV to see if I might catch an English movie to help me unwind before going to sleep. The only thing that came close was a Spiderman flick, voice-over dubbed into Polish. What a hoot! If I listened closely, I could hear the first couple of English words spoken by each character before the Polish narrator spoke, and the rest was just a wild guess!
