|Morning all. Got into Wroclaw early yesterday morning and in the wee small hours saw nothing to get excited about.
How things change. Set off for a wander after a decent lie in and got to the main square. Absolutely beautiful. Pretty buildings in bright colours, street vendors, outdoor cafes (and bars) and fountains. Fantastic.
Then headed down to Sand Island which is the centre for all things "churchy." I lost count of the number of churches that there were but while mainly boringly red-brick on the outside (am presuming a result of rebuilding after WWII) the insides were amazing. Stained glass, iconography and everything else that the Catholic church does so well!
Noticed a big outdoor screen in the square (in Polish it's the Rynek so I'll call it that from here on in) with beer tents and seating. Yup, Poland aren't even in the World Cup but they've provided somewhere for me to see the game tomorrow. Good lads.
The final few things to note are:
a) In Wroclaw, the majority of people don't speak English. I've mastered the word for "Thank You" and the word for beer (it's "Piwo" in case you were wondering. The rest of the time I've got away with pointing and looking confused.
b) The women are absolutely stunning. All of them. I'm not even joking. I'd been told but never really believed it.
All the best, Nick x
