Still in Warsaw

The Palace of Science and Culture...
So today I woke up in time to partake of the free breakfast included with the cost of my room... judging by the limited selection of stale cereal and instant coffee I had to choose from, I'm convinced that "free" translates to "shitty" in Polish when used to describe a meal.  After sucking down some stale cheerio-like cereal and a cup of insta-coffee I headed out to see some museums and such.  My first stop was at the Fryderyk Chopin museum.  Using my old UTSACard to score a student discount, I was able to enjoy this museum for a mere 4 zloty.  There wasn't much to this museum and after only 15 minutes I'd already seen more pictures of Chopin than I cared to see... at least the piped in piano music was nice.  After this, I walked over to the Palace of Culture and Science to take in the view from the observation deck.
Me, trying to figure out the self-timer on my camera, in front of the Warsaw Uprising Monument...
  The Palace of C&S is the tallest building in town and from the 30th floor observation tower one can see all of Warsaw (entry was 5 zloty after yet another student discount).  At this point, I hiked over to the Warsaw Uprising Museum to see what they had going on over there.  Be advised, the Museum is to the right of the Warsaw Uprising Monument.... to the left is the Supreme Court... which is "NOT museum" as the security guard graciously informed me before refusing me entry (I really didn't care to see the Supreme Court anyway).  After this Museum, I decided I'd had my fill of cultural shit for one day and headed back to the Stare Miasto for pirogis and Zywiec.

Hey, I have a 'free' room, if you are interested. Did you seriously use your student ID to get a discount? You must like your women like you like your travel - cheap.

You should go to Lazienki Park, there you could at least feed the squirrels and peacocks.
