In the morning my bro and his wife had to go tho see the doctor and so i went with them - i brought them (by metro of course!) to the place and left them there. Then i was shopping a bit (they have nice prices while sales hahaha), walking through my fave places in the capital and i was just chilling out there. In my opinion the center and the Old Town in Warszawa are really nice (the rest sucks maybe more than in other cities hahahah) but all in all i like many places there. I was riding my lovely metro as well, visiting the Park Saski with the 'Grave of the unknown soldier" (my own free translation of a soldier memorial ;)) [and there were a lot of polish unknown soldiers, cuz - if u know a bit european history - Poles were fighting in every war here]
After some 2hrs i met again my Piotrek and Magda and we went to a 'secret' place of magda for eating some kebab (döner).
My mom, who was staying at home cooked something. We ate it and went to the mall just at the corner - for some shopping (JeAr i should have taken pics for u of the mall hahaha).
In the evening we went to the Old Town - walked a bit, and decided to sit in a pub - but since we were waiting like 34523hrs for the waiter we went out of this place and choosed another - a more friendly one - where the waiter was there waiting for our orders;) So we drank a beer and talked my mom complained about everything as usual. We were just sitting there and looking at the people then we could hear the woman at the neighbour table talking on the phone to her little boy who was in some camp or so - she called him 'little angel' and the angel called her 4 times within 2 minutes to say 'good night' hahahaha.
The night in Old Town is a wonderful time - it seems like the whole city would come there for enjoy the warm summer outside; there are not only tourists but it's also a meeting point for every kind of ppl who's resident in Warszawa (on thepics u can see even a group of motobikers - cool bikes!, runner who's absolving his evening jogging or the bicycle-bikers (LoL) enjoying the car-free space).
After we came back home - we watched a movie 'K-19' (i'm not sure if this is the original title as well but never mind) u might have seen it, Harrison Ford is starring - and the whole movie is about the u-boat.
