The sun finally broke through the clouds today. I have never appreciated a simple ray of sunshine as much as I have in Warsaw. Never!
Spring is technically here, though it hasn’t quite “sprung” yet. A few crocuses are peeking out here and there, but the temperatures were still in the 30s today. Still, any time I can see blue sky, I know it’s time to bundle up and get out with my camera.
Some people say that Warsaw is beautiful. After tours in Prague and Vienna, I think it’s understandable why I can’t go quite that far. I think Warsaw is very interesting, with flashes of beauty—or at least eye-catching weirdness—to be seen everywhere. This is especially apparent when one is out and about on foot, as I usually am.
I try to carry my pocket Canon with me in my purse all the time. Lately I’ve been posting to Instagram daily. It’s so easy to exist in that expat bubble! I may not understand much of what is going on around me, but staying alert to photo ops is an important way that I connect to my local environment.
Today I hopped a tram up to Skaryszewski Park (and no, I can’t pronounce that!) Here’s a few photos taken on the way, and in the park.
