Castle of Poznań
We took the train from Zielona Góra to Poznań and arrived there short after noon. Girls - of course werent on time soe we went to the castle to make it shorter and meet 'em faster. I saw Christine after meeting her in singapore 2 months ago. She stayed at Lena's place some kilometers out of town and they drove down to Poznań. We walked slowly and after few minutes Agata managed to join us. Hm... women, they are always late... exactly like filipinos! :) (i'm starting to believe what Mike said, that they will decline my entry to Philippines when i will go there next time;) after all those jokes about filipinos i will be 'persona non grata'. Hahaha! ;)

Then we went to the Old Market Sq. and visited the whole area, and stopped for some coffee.

Every one except agata was copying me and drank caffe latte. ;) As next stop was this souvenirs place and post office where we were sending the postcards and went back to the Old market to have a look at the "traditional-food-market" with tons of old food, traditional kiełbasa and other stuff. Unfortunatelly the guests - our asians didnt buy real food but candies! That's sad - ahahhaha.
As it was short before 16.00 we headed for obiad - lunch/dinner - to a nice place, with traditional patatos dishes (u have to know, that Poles call ppl from Poznań and surroundings "patatos", because of their fave food which is... Guess!)
Anyways we ate and drank and it was good. Agata i have to admit that the place was a very good choise! Salamat! (=dzięki).

From food place we headed to the Park at the castle and then left for Stary Browar - the mall, according of asians love to all kinds of malls ;) It turned out pretty late so we brought Mike to the train. He left for Berlin and next for Singapore. Ciao Mike, travel safe home!
At the station we had to find a good conection for Christine and buy ticket for Praga. I hope she made it to the czech capital and then to Vienna also. Leaving the station we took the old crapy tram and arrived at Ostrów Tumski (island with cathedral) - here i left the groupe, coz i had a meeting. We said goodbyes and when i was in tram heading to the Old Town Agata called me saying, they forgotto take out of my backpack the candies that Christine bought! ahhahahaha She was lucky coz i hate sweets so the candies were more than safe in my backpack. In that situation they had to head back to Old Town after visiting cathedral and get back the candies. Which happened after 2 hours maybe? I was sitting withy my friend and enjoying the drinks when all the guys showed up. I returned to Christine the candies and they stayed for one drink. Christina tryed Żubrówka - if she liked it? Ask her.
Then they left, for railway station to catch the train.
And that was the first meet up:) See u at the next one guys!
