My final day in Warsaw. (I almost just wrote Berlin! They are similar.) Wandering libraries and art museums. But first thing was to bus to the bus station and buy my ticket for the following day. I'd built it up to a long nightmare with an unsmiling attendant in the midst of confusion and suffering and it ended up being a five minute simple experience ending in a smile- one of the easiest encounters of my trip. After that was out of the way, I was off to my greatest loves, art and books.
The Modern Art Museum, which is in a temporary location, small, beautiful and free. Simple in it's B&W display, with a tiny cafe at the entrance where I topped off my visit with an espresso.
The artistic metro station, Plac Wilsona. It was nice but I was underwhelmed. But with a 16zl (4Euro) 3-day transport pass, it was not a waste of much time and no money.
Ok so I was thinking that the people in the library could probably see up my skirt since it is all windows but hopefully it was kind of far away and they really couldn't see anything but if they did see something I hope it made them happy at least.
I went to see the Polish Little Mermaid who is supposed to have muscles but then this was there instead. So I took a picture. You can just imagine the muscular little mermaid. I hope you can imagine it.
Warsaw: Visit. But be strong. It is not for the weak. It is worth your efforts. Fearlessly attempt public transport. Polish people are nice and helpful but speak mostly Polish. Not so much English or German, but you will get by. I did. Anyway. It's a very interesting, very large town. Go!
