What another festival?

What another festival in town?  

Yep, just down the street from us is a park(our version of NY Central Park) and they had a festival promoting the different local agencies/charities in the community, along with lots of crafts and food of course. Unfortunately we got rained on 40  minutes into it so we had to go home.  But we made the most of the time we had especially when I ran into a few different friends.

Even the dog came with us on this one being so close to home.

Hopefully there will be a couple more before winter sets in as I did not getting anything at the festival as the ATM before I came only had 100 zloty bills and I went to 3 different booths to purchase something and no one could break it.  So note to self for next time make sure you have small bills!!!!

 Days like today is just one of the reasons why I am enjoying living in Poland!

    Seeing the plaid on the folk dancers’ skirts make me wonder whether that’s from Scottish influence. I know there were a lot of traders from Scotland who relocated to Poland in the 1500s or thereabouts.

    And I know what you mean about trying to break large bills–I was in a supermarket in Warsaw and they were reluctant to break a 20!

    • When the ATM only gives you 100′s what are suppose to do? Really 20′s? That is just CRAZY!!

        Yeah, I know, I was a little surprised. The clerk was trying to explain, I think, but since I don’t speak Polish it didn’t really help.

        After that, we would try to go someplace where they’d break 100s (usually a restaurant or big tourist spot) and then hoard our smaller bills.
