The third “Polandian BlogFest” was held yesterday in Warsaw’s old town, attracting many of the world’s best Polish themed blog people. Such was the combined influence of the gathered assembly that the sun came out for the whole day. The first time it had been seen since last September and it has disappeared again today!
Bloggettes came from far and wide including Krakow, the UK & Sweden (via Gdansk). Having arrived slightly earlier to make sure the table was sorted, I took the opportunity to wander around outside snapping the guests as they arrived.
First in was adthelad who can be seen here giving those walking around the old town the full benefit of his rants on themes of “Why bishops should be allowed to say what the hell they like!” & “How the twin towers were felled by a troop of trained beavers.”.
Here’s the band singing to the waitress, a song called “Oh why were you born such a miserable cow?”
After the Bavarian experience a few hardy souls wandered the old town looking for more beer. The place I knew has closed down. The place Michael knew has closed as well. The place Jamie knew was actually a curry house & Felicity had no idea where she was. The bar next door to Jamie’s curry house was jammed and noisy as hell so we ended up in an underground labyrinth called something like Paddy O’Leary’s Irish pub. The only thing Irish about it was the Guinness. They had a live band playing with music and video piped through to the bar area where we were standing. The rest of the band were inaudible over the screeching of the lead crooner who was so bad that most people thought there was an amateur karaoke competition in process. I could stand no more and left after downing a Guinness, what happened to the others is a mystery.
