Poland brought us to the medieval castle of Malbork located near the city of Gdansk. I must have taken over 300 pictures of the castle before we even got to Gdansk to view the Church of Mary.
We spent much of our time on the bus in between locations because our bus drive kept taking the wrong turns. After about the fourth wrong turn which where the correct location was well marked we started getting nervous. Finally the tour guide took to watch the bus driver and giving his spiel. It was amazing and had me wondering who this fellow knew to get a premium job like this is Poland.
We had lunch at the castle with a three piece string trio, local beers and food. I looked at the music of the musicians, I’d been doing this all along and rather than the hand written songs I had been seeing, I saw a standard three staff trio piece that looked like it had been copied from a Rubanks or some such lesson book. I will be posting videos of the medieval music on my YouTube account once I get back to my ultra-fast FiOS connection at home.
Once in Gdansk we had a whirlwind tour of the Church of Mary and the Market and Long Streets.
I’ve received some comments about the pictures I am planning on posting on my Flickr account. The Internet is so slow here, I am going to have to wait to post until we get back to the States.
