More from last weekend


The Saxon Market in Warsaw is build around a disused football stadium. The market isn't exactly inside the stadium, but it is built on the rim at the top of the stadium, the various stairs and slopes on the outer sides of the stadium, and the ground around the stadium. When I was there last weekend, the inside of the stadium was covered with snow. It is really a remarkable place.

I think it may actually be more a matter of "Polish parents want their kids to love English, actually.


That said, to fully function in the modern globalised world, I think you do need English, so you might as well start early.
I've been lazy about my redirections, but here is a roundup.

I have just posted a piece on Samizdata about the classic geek movie Tron, and why it didn't win an academy award for Best Visual Effects.

A couple of days ago, I posted a piece about searching for Danish cheese in a Carrefour in Warsaw.

The day before that, I posted a piece on Stalinist-Gothic-Vampire architecture in Warsaw.

I have a couple of other posts that I put up in the last couple of months for which I cannot presently find beacuse Samizdata's archives are screwed. I will post even more belated redirections when I do find them.

This is me trying to be too arty
I love the modern globalised world

I am sitting in my flat in London, eating some delicious kabanosy Polish sausage, that I bought a few hours ago in Poland. I think this is cool.
