Five days, five discoveries…

It is only our fifth day in the city and we have already discovered how special this place is going to be for us. These are some of the things we have learned this week:

  1. All roads lead to Rynek.
  2. There are more kebabs than people. (Ok, that is not true, but the proportion of kebabs per km2 is remarkable).
  3. The umbrellas on Bracka Street are not for the sun. They are for rain, at least from now on, because “winter is always coming”.
  4. Offices are not always boring places and Polish radio is not bad at all, specially if Tetyana does the chorus.
  5. You start to feel that Leszno is you new home and you do not know what adventures await but you want them to happen.
