An Afternoon in Warsaw

We really only had one afternoon and evening in Warsaw, a stopover we wanted to make on our way to Tallinn. Pbaser Jola Dziubinska was kind enough to show us around Old Town and New Town, which was about all we had time for, and we had a lovely (and delicious!) dinner with Jola and her husband, Tomasz Dziubinski, also with marvelous galleries here http://www.pbase.com/smok53. Unfortunately the weather was a bit dreary (but beautiful the next morning, when we were leaving ;-)), but still, we enjoyed Warsaw and have put it on our list of places to return to.

Jola's excellent galleries can be found here http://www.pbase.com/jolka ... it was her beautiful pictures of Old Town (in brilliant sunshine!) that first inspired me to visit Warsaw.
