This was not just strong wind, it blew huge branches off the tree´s. 110 kmph.
The van was heading into the wind, but when the gusts came it really rocked us.
Yesterday was a lovely day, with a strong breeze to keep us cool, jus how we like it.
The picture is of the church Hans was taken too by horse and cart when he was here as an infant, he didn´t remember anything of the church, but did remember that in the snow the horses pulled them on the sledge and they were wrapped in furs.
A little restaurant in the town serves a variety of food, the manager speaks good German so translated the menu for us, 2 chicken schnitsel, egg, salad and chips, a large beer (sorry Graham
we only drink light beer not dark so can´t help) sparkling water and the bill came to ----41.50 PLN Polish slotties thats not 10 € (exchange rate 11/06/201 4.35 = 1€)
Antonio our host comes from Warsaw, yesteday 3 friends arrived from there, we had a very happy evening with them, 2 spoke passable English, we had fish from the lake caught by the neighbour Bogdan who´s work is controlling 43 lakes in this area, he was also at the gathering. I don´t know how many bottles of Vodka were drunk, but we all went to bed tired and happy just after dark.
At 5 am this morning I was woken by a humming noise, found out at 9am it was a tractor cutting a hay field behind the house. These fields are absolutely gigantic, we thought German fields were big, but these fields seem to have no end to them.
Shade had another little swim in the lake, unfortunately cut short because there were a lot of bee´s who had come for a drink while we were there.
Sometime today Bogdon is going to take Hans to the village we came here to find, its along a dirt road and I do not want to take the Navajo, I think its being shaken up enough coming in and out of this road.
In this part of Poland there are rolling hills, very beautiful, mountains one can also find in Polad if you want them
I will answer the other questions later, the Priest has just arrived (nothing is spoken about religion though) Hans´s lift has also arrived, I must say hello and hopefully get a photo of us all. Also the church photo later.
