Random thought: I decided to try a big mac in Berlin for curiousity sake. I found out that a big mac in any language is just as shitty.
Got on the train at Hauptbarnhof. Pretty uneventful. I did sit opposite the mother of all M.I.L.Fs. Damn!! At least I had something to look at for the entire train ride. When the train crossed the border from Germany into Poland, I definitely knew we were in East Europe. Things were very different. Poorer definitely. The train stations in West Europe were like mini cities in their own rights. You could find almost anything there. One thing I hated though, you had to pay to take a piss. No bloody way. I'd rather piss my pants.
I finally saw me some sun yesterday. By God, how I've missed it. The feel of Warszawa (Warsaw for y'all) is different but it's my favourite thus far. And it's amazing. People don't jaywalk here. They wait for the little man to turn green, then they go. That was foreign to me. My roommates here have been the best ones I've had. There was Imagen and May (Australia), Billy (Naw'leans), and K1 (India). We had a great time. Last night, we went to try some traditional Polish dumplings. Hmm... Yum... After that we headed back to the hostel where we drank some. May saw these two Americans she liked so we helped her cook up a story to tell them to break the ice: She was born in Austin and went to college at UTEP.
Some dude was backpacking in Ireland, when he came across a bar. He decided to go in and get some brews. While drinking his beer, an old man by the name O'Brien came in, bought some beers and started to talk to the dude. "You see this bar right here, lad?" he began, "I built it.
I cracked up laughing. That was too funny.
Anyways, we went to the club and had a great time dancing the night away. We got home around 5 a.m and woke up around 8:30 a.m because the ladies had to catch the train to Krakow. Then Billy and I decided to go to the Uprising Museum. Took us an hour to find it and the bloody thing was closed. Oh well, we tried. We didn't care really. We were bushed anyways. So I went back to the hostel and slept the day away. I needed it.
Warszawa has been great but it's time to move on. Next stops, Krakow and Auschwitz.
P.S: Some of those comments on the pictures were posted by some jackasses I told to watch my upload. Either way, funny.
