This is where I live

After much time spent trying to install software on my iMac, more time cursing and swearing, trips to the electronics store, and way too many hours online (or actually not online), I finally decided to save pictures to CD and transfer them to my laptop. Not sure why it took me so long to figure out this simple option.

One day I'll get internet access on my iMac, but for now, this is the city I live in:



What I love most about Krakow is the architecture. Every building includes small details that you might miss if you don't look carefully. The first few weeks here I was so worried about spraining my ankles again that I was always looking at the sidewalk. Now I walk around with my head up, craning my neck to look at the buildings. This guy lives just down the street from me:




The juxtaposition between old and new is apparent everyday in Krakow. These beautiful women are in the gorgeous 19th century opera house/theatre in Krakow. Watching modern ballet from a New York City ballet company while sitting in a plush 200 hundred year old box was one of the highlights of my first few weeks in Krakow.

I like the view of all the rooftops.

That statue guy looks "stressed out". ..poor guy. ;-)
