Poland is a culinary delight. Warm rye and sour soups, mushrooms in season, pierogies with savory fillings, fresh fishes, and bastion of beets. all make for lovely meals and lively conversations…

And so began the day at the Warsaw Uprising Museum

Then we enjoyed a beautiful walk in Warsaw…

With lovely art and music surrounding us:

I did a blog post on this last year but the importance of this site cannot be understated:

We then had some fun with one of our favorite family topics of interest: modern art at the Zacheta Museum.

Modern Art Museum

This exhbit featured some fascinating topics including:

A family who loves art together stays together!

Nothing like a homemade sign from your parents to greet you at the Warsaw airport!

Thaddeus got one, too, in all fairness 🙂

We are off to a great adventure.  Stay tuned.
