I am attempting to postpone the above...

... for the reasons specified below:



So if anyone wants English lessons, or a three-month couch surfer... you know who to call...

I till can't believe it that you learned Polish so fast.

Pinolona - you are an Old Soul. You have lived Before. In Kraków. Your Soul belongs in Kraków. DO NOT LEAVE.

anonymous: thanks but whoah hold on there. i've got a long way to go on the Polish front (plus I make extensive use of google when attempting to write anything in Polish).

Jeziorki:
I'm not so sure. There are also certain places in Scotland where my soul feels pretty content. I'm a sucker for a nice location.
Plus like all Brits I'm longing after the sea...

So.. what about Tricity? :>

Jacek - "Tricity" is a brand of household appliance.(http://www.tricity-bendix.co.uk/)

Trójmiasto is (or should be) Tri-City.

And while I'm at it, zdrój is spa, not SPA.

(One has to correct these commonly made errors!)

Pinolona, Old Souls may have had many past lives. Recent ones resonate more strongly than ones from the distant past, but they are still there, the yearnings return like waves on a beach.

Let her go.

She feels it is time to leave.

Maybe in 30 yrs she will come back to Krakow and show her grandchildren where the bad obwazanki lady once stood and where the damn boiler....

ps:...and Krakow will wait for her, even if it takes 30 yrs. Krakow is an old city and old cities are patient...

Jacek: I was thrown by the Tricity thing too! But I would have understood you if you'd said Trojmiasto...
And it's not the same. (although I haven't been yet. That's a good unemployment project). It's not the same when you have to take the night train for ten hours and there's a tiny bit of sea at the very northernmost past of the country while Kraków is totally land-locked. In the UK you never have to go too far to get to the sea. It's comforting to know that it's close by and you could quite happily sail off to Norway if the fancy took you.

Anonymous 2 (& 3?): I rather think the point is that I _don't_ feel it's time to leave yet!

ps in 30 years' time I won't be able to afford to live in Kraków!
