On the road between Lublin and Nałęchów.

This is a spa town, with mineral springs.  A well known brand of Polish mineral water comes from here.   There are numerous old stately mansions with beautiful architecture and a spa where you can swim and soak in the water and also take a mud baths.  I'd never done that before, so this is my chance!  It was an interesting experience - floating in the thick hot mud... Of course I couldn't lay still, moved around too much and ended up getting mud in my eye!  That smarts!!  Afterwards I was truly ready for a nap!

It took a little time to find our guest house...  Not because it was particularly difficult to find, but rather because it just didn't look like a guest house and we drove by it a couple times before realizing that it was our destination.

  Once we parked and got out of the car we were greeted by a nice elderly woman who reminded me of my grandma about 20 years ago:-( ....  She showed us inside and to our rooms.  This was my first time at a place like this.  It felt like staying with someone's family. 

As I wrote this we were sitting in one of the rooms, Sergio, El Pibe, Erica, la chapita and I...  drinking mate again.  This Argentinian mate thing really grows on me.   At this point our friend Hiroshi finally managed to show up and we got started preparing our "asado" for dinner.  We had bought some pork ribs, some really good beef and a bunch of different polish sausages.  To go with that we had some salads, bread and plenty of things to drink - mostly beer!
