pressure off allowing you to enjoy the experience. Although I hadn’t intended to bother or involve anyone at the expense of my explorations, my friend who initially gave me subway directions connected me to her friends living in Poland. They were delighted that I was coming; it was also their day off making them all the more eager to show me around.
My return flight was scheduled to arrive in Warsaw at 6:30AM local time; this time there were no delays. As promised, the two tour guide friends (now my friends too) arrived smiling from ear to ear as they greeted me in airport arrivals. They also had a car, magnifying the number of things we could accomplish by tenfold compared to being on foot. They were even so kind as to prepare and bring a lovely breakfast, complete with black tea and lemon; we ate in the car’s comfort as we drove to our first destination.
