What a weekend!

I can't decide what my favourite part of this weekend was.

Seeing the ('seriously, they really look alike!') Kaczyńskis on Piłsudski Square amid crowds of flag-waving Poles, with cannons firing and soldiers marching or coming across this drawing on Krakowskie Przedmiescie...

Being at a club dancing with old and new friends, being mistaken for one of the (thin, scantily dressed, attractive, did I mention thin?) girls who was obviously being paid to dance and lounge about or noticing Kochanek shaking his thang right next to us.

Showing off our new flat and beloved Warsaw, while overindulging in good food and drink to a good Polish-Canadian friend of mine, who praised absolutely everything she was shown, or watching Marek be the perfect host, being patient with her and my Polish, being there (chauffering, cooking, advising, helping, explaining) when we needed him and giving us space to be girly when we wanted.

Voting in my first Polish local elections with a mild hangover, the panic on the face of the man trying to find me on the list and the relief when he was shown the 'special EU list' with its grand total of four names, or the man who came up to one of the people in charge to check that 'this Marcinkiewicz is the one off the tv right?'

Maybe, just maybe, it was just getting all those cards, presents and happy wishes. Thank you lovely people!

So, did you find that least homophobic candidate to vote for?

I wonder what Kononowicz`s views on the subject are...

Yes, I voted. I dread to think what Mr. Kononowicz has to say on the matter!
