Carrie and I stood near the main square (on the very end of Szewska street) during the funeral mass for the president and his wife.

I've been working on my Polish

Lately I've been putting some extra effort in trying to improve my Polish. Oddly enough, in Poland I haven't had too many opportunity for conversation with normal people about normal topics. Mostly I speak Polish with the officers of various government offices. There is a lot of bureaucracy in Poland and for the last 6 weeks or so we've been to at least one office a week, primarily the tax office.

Anyway, one of my efforts to speak more normal Polish has been recording YouTube videos in Polish. I've recorded one every Sunday for the past 4 weeks.

Here they are in chronological order:

Arrival at "Mill Houses" hotel in Santorini, Greece (re-enacted July 18th, 2009)

This is a re-enactment of our arrival at "Mill Houses" hotel in Santorini, Greece. The audio wasn't very good so I tried to add some sub-titles. That also aren't very good. When we're heading down the stairs you get a glimpse of Andreas, the guy who worked the pool bar. We lead you all the way to our room.

Our hotel room in Santorini, Greece (July 16th, 2009)

Our really awesome junior suite at the Mill Houses Hotel in Santorini (Thira), Greece. Its a cave into the wall of the cliff on one side of the island. It is really very unique.. Right outside our door was the pool bar area which I captured in another video.
