319: A sight (site) for sore (saw) (Warsaw) eyes.

Homophones - words that have the same pronunciation but different meanings, origins or spelling.
This is part II of my Warsaw related blog. I left there last Tuesday and only now have found five minutes to post the pictures.
It's true folks, I have decided to leave Moscow, after 6 'interesting' years, and set up shop in Warsaw. I will be sad to leave Moscow, I have some great friends and students, but it is time to move on to pastures new.
Here are some more pictures from my few days in Warsaw last week.
Dumplings she called them. Don't look anything like our dumplings.
Warsaw too has lots of green spaces.

Memorials everywhere. Understandably.
Tenement buildings. Could be anywhere.

The company I plan to work for/with

A beam-me-up-Scotty kind of lift!

Bring on the dancing girls!

The train to the airport. Long platform, short train. I was standing at the wrong end of the platform and had to sprint to catch the train!

317: Warsaw - Poles apart from Moscow

I'm in Warsaw for a few days trying to decide if I would like to work here when I've had enough of Moscow, or perhaps when Moscow has had enough of me.
Had a run this morning - best way to see a new town for the first time. I bought a one-day travel card this afternoon so that I could jump on and off buses, tubes, and trams on a whim - another good way of exploring a city.
Yesterday was a public holiday here and last night and this  morning the place was almost deserted. This evening there are more people wandering about. I'm curious too see how busy it is tomorrow, on a workday. Here are most of the pictures I took today.
