So, we just completed our first major Polish adventure. We wandered out this morning in search of food and ended up repeating a pattern. Whenever we're in a new place, we wander outside with the intention of finding food. Not any food -- but REAL food. The stuff that REAL people in the area eat.

(You and I both know that REAL people eat McDonalds, KFC, and the crap that meerkat
won't eat, but forget that's true for a moment.)

There was more later in the day -- but essentially it was us looking for a way to dial a mobile number and trying to brute force the way the phone system works. It seems like in order to dial a mobile number, we'll have to get a phone card and use the public telephones. That's a whole strange ordeal -- and it's a post for another time.

So apparently everyone missed this (even though I've told people this repeatedly):

The reason I'm in Poland is because meerkat (who I've been dating for a year now) is moving to Poland for 2 years. She got a job out here with an organization that's very similar to the U.N. I came with her to help her set up, find a place, and get into the swing of things. I'll be back in around two weeks and back to my job.

Subanswers to the obligatory ones that people ask:
1) No, she doesn't speak Polish.
1a) Neither am I.
2) No, she's not Polish.
2a) Neither am I.
3) No, she doesn't like the cold.
3a) I like visiting the cold and pretending to be Shackleton.

Until then, this is the first time I've ever been off the continent of North America, so it's a combination business and pleasure trip.
