| I’d chosen this particular room months ago |

|The guard changes hourly at the |
Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
|These 3 arches of a colonnade|

|Arrived in Warsaw on the eve of a |
National Holiday, thus Polish flagseverywhere,

filled with pedestrians, cafes, monuments and fountains;
how can anyone not be enchanted?
|Andrew: Hope this qualifies for the street |
scenes you asked for!
|Musicians everywhere you turned in the squares;|
these men played a polka.
|Church of the Benedictine Nuns|
aka Nuns of the Blessed Sacrament Church:
one of 6 churches in a very small area
|Probably easier to see it this way |
without my head in the way, huh!
|St Jack's Church: |
During the Warsaw Uprising, it housed
an insurgents' hospital; it was bombed burying
approximately 1,000 people in the rubble.
