Warsaw was a lovely city and probably is an awesome place to live.
I just didn't love it as a tourist.
I took the free walking tour (it's a great way to get a feeling for an unfamiliar city) and saw some of the historic sites.
I wandered about, spent some time enjoying the old town, took in an evening light show, and walked a zillion miles down to a beautiful park.
But it was just too damn hot to be sightseeing.
I never really thought of Poland as a place that would be super hot.
I was dying.

|Marie Curie lived here.|
|light show that had accompanying music|
|A very beautiful park, that was having live music performances, |
that was also much further than I expected.
My feet were so unhappy.
|This pretty peacock was wandering around.|
And, a few food highlights...
|omg. Definitely go here.|
|I think this one was "toffee."|
Nothing was in English.
Nonetheless, it was AMAZING!
|Inside the deliciousness.|
|A popular Polish food that starts with a 'z' I think.|
Don't remember what it was called,
but I do remember being fairly unsure of exactly what I was eating.
|pierogies, but probably the least exciting ones I had all week. : (|
I stayed here...the hotel was awesome, but maybe the location was a little far from the areas that I wanted to spend time in.
This Indian restaurant had decent food and amazing NAAN.
The best donuts.
I bought some traditional Polish pottery at this shop. Good prices and selection.
I found Polish Christmas ornaments here.
