23.04.2017 – THE FIRST COCA AND THE SECRET LIFE OF THE NUNS

.
PIETRUSZKA AFTER THE NEXT DOSE OF MEDICINE FELT QUITE GOOD. WE WONDERED IF IT WAS A RAW FISH, OR SOME VIRUS HAD HARMED HIM. AT BREAKFAST WE WERE GIVEN AN EGG – PREPARATION METHOD OF YOUR CHOICE; BREAD, JUICE, TEA, ROLLS, BUTTER AND JAM. (more…)


22.04.2017 – POISONED ?

.

I WOKE UP AROUND 6:30 am. TOO EARLY TO GET UP. DO NOT WAKING UP WOMBAT, I TURNED ON THE COMPUTER AND I STARTED BLOGGING A LITTLE BIT. AT 8:00 WE GOT UP, AND STARTED PREPARING FOR CHECK-IN. UNEXPECTEDLY, I FELT STRANGE. I JUMPED TO THE JOHN. THE STREAM OF SOMETHING LOOKING AS DILUTE SOUP SAILED OUT OF ME. EMPTYING I WANTED TO CONTINUE PACKING, BUT I STARTED TO FEEL DIZZY, SO I FELL ON THE SACK TRYING TO COME TO MYSELF. FOR OVER AN HOUR I WAS LYING WITH MILD REDUCTION OF CONSCIOUSNESS AND SHIVERS RANNING THROUGH, WONDERING, AT THE MOMENTS OF MY SELF WHETHER, ONE WOULD NEED A DOCTOR-QUACK. (more…)


21.04.2017 – CRAZY DAY IN LIMA

.

FINALLY WELL-RESTED, WE WERE ABLE TO THINK ABOUT SEEING IN THIS CITY TWO, BEING THE MOST INTERESTED FOR US SOURCES OF THE CULTURE.
THE MOST IMPORTANT TO SEE ARE THE LARCO MUSEUM AND THE NATIONAL MUSEUM. (more…)


20.04.2017 – LIMA – ZESTS AND FLAVORS

.

WE GOT UP LATE. USUALLY WORKS THIS WAY AFTER A FAIRLY LONG FLIGHT WITH A 7 HOUR TIME DIFFERENCE.

OUR HOTEL ACCOMMODATION DOESN’T AMAZE, BUT ALSO ISN’T BAD. DECENT SIZE. HOWEVER THE LACK OF THE WARDROBE, SHELVES AND TOWEL HOOKS IN THE BATHROOM IS DISTURBING. WE WOULD PREFER ALSO AN AIR-CONDITIONING, RATHER THAN THE WINDMILL  – BUT THAT’S A NOT IMPORTANT DETAIL. MOST IMPORTANTLY, THEY HAVE SIMILAR TYPES OF PLUGS AND SOCKETS WE USE IN POLAND, AND THE MAIN ENTRANCE DOORS ARE PRACTICALLY CLOSED ALL THE TIME. ALL THIS FOR ABOUT € 24 PER NIGHT. (more…)


19.04.2017 – WAKE-UP IN HORLEY – GOING BED IN LIMA

.
IN THE MORNING WE PACKED UP THE STUFF AND WENT BACK TO THE CENTRE OF THE TOWN – THIS TIME FOR BREAKFAST. THE CHOICE WAS NOT OBVIOUS, BECAUSE FOR SEVERAL HUNDRED METERS WE ENCOUNTERED A FEW FOOD SERVING SPOTS. BEGINNING FROM TYPICAL BREAKFAST BARS, THROUGH A VARIETY OF BAKERIES AND ENDING AT LIDL. HAVING ANALYSED ALL THE PROS AND CONS WE DECIDED TO EAT SUSHI WASHED DOWN WITH THE BEER AND SCOTTISH  EGG (ALL THIS FOR 5.95 £). I NEVER HAD SUCH A MEAL – IT WAS A MUST TRY … (more…)


18.04.2017 – BARCELONA AND HORLEY FLAVORS

.

WE ARE FLYING TO LONDON IN THE EVENING. SO WE ARE HAVING NO MUCH TIME FOR GETTING TO KNOW THE WORLD TODAY.

WE DECIDED, THANKS TO THE TIPS OF OUR STAR FROM JOZEFOWIEC (HELLO !!!:)) TO GO TO MONTJUÏC – FAMOUS BARCELONA JEWISH HILLS. THE JOURNEY A BIT IS COMPLICATED. 2 BUSES AND METRO. HOWEVER THAT ISN’T SCARING US OFF. AFTER ABOUT 90 min. WE ARE LANDING JUST UNDER A SOLID LOOKING MONTJUÏC FORTRESS. ADMISSION € 5, 65 + € 3 pp.
THE STRONGHOLD IS HUGE, BUT INSIDE, APART FROM A FEW INTERESTING CANNONS THEY GATHERED LITTLE. DESPITE EVERYTHING, IT IS WORTHWHILE TO COME HERE JUST TO HAVE A LOOK AT THE PANORAMA OF THE CITY AND THE PORT. SIGHTSEEING TIME 60 – 90 min. (more…)


17.04.2017 – BETWEEN CAVAS

.

WHEN I DROPPED DEAD TIRED AT MIDNIGHT, IT SEEMED TO ME THAT MY BIOLOGICAL CLOCK WOULD WAKE ME UP AS USUAL AFTER 6, MAYBE 6.5 HOURS. THEN, BEFORE THE WOMBACIK OPENS HER EYES, I WILL HAVE PLENTY OF TIME FOR BLOGGING.
APPARENTLY MY BODY NEEDED MORE SLEEP AND UNFORTUNATELY I GOT UP AT 9:00 AM.
(more…)


16.04.2017 – ALMOST BARCELONA

.

GETTING UP AT 4:30? NOBODY LIKES IT. AT THIS HOUR I USUALLY DIVE INTO THE SACK. THIS TIME, HOWEVER, IT WAS NECESSARY.

THE PLANE TO BARCELONA IS FLYING OFF AT 7:10. NOT KNOWING THE AIRPORT, TAKING A CORRECTION FOR PUBLIC TRANSPORT AND HAVING A PRIORITY OF THE EMBARKATION ON THE PLANE – WE RECOGNIZED THESE 2 HOURS AND 40 min. TO THE DEPARTURE AS SUFFICIENT.
THE BUS FROM THE BUS STOP NEAR THE HOTEL ARRIVED AT THE AIRPORT PUNCTUALLY. A FEW MINUTES LATER WE WERE ON THE SPOT. (more…)


09.04.2017 – PERU – PROLOG

.

TO THE START OF OUR TRIP IS STILL A LOT OF TIME, BUT WE ARE NOT IDLE. WE ARE CONSTANTLY COLLECTING INFORMATION AND JUST FROM THE LATEST REPORTS SOME ANXIETY KEEPS BLOWING. PERU IS SINKING IN THE POURING RAIN AND MUDSLIDES. A STATE OF NATURAL DISASTER HAS EVEN BEEN DECLARED. PERHAPS IT MIGHT NEED TO BE TOTALLY REVISE OUR PLANS. WE WILL WAIT AND SEE … (more…)
