(A Japanese Chopin fan, traveling alone to Warsaw, Poland for the first time)
Summary of the day: "Rest, lazy and less Chopin day"
I was so tired from the Krakow trip in the previous day, so I stayed hotel till 11am.
Since I was in short of clothing at that point, I decided to get a tank top and fit pants in T.J.Maxx.
... the below is girly out cry.
I am relatively big for Japanese. I am size M in U.S., and size L in Japan.
Now, M pants, L shirts in Poland! Shoulderrghrrr!
It turned out it was the fort related to November uprising in 1830, and currently owned by military.
From the closest Tram stop to Citadelle, I walked through residential area, non-touristy places where people live. Those housings really reminded me the town I grew up in Japan. Here is the comparison from Google's street view.
From Citadelle to new town, I saw many yummy looking fruits tree casually planted aside of driving road. If I were that hungry, I could have reach to those free fruits for sure.
At the old town, I had Grzane Piwo (hot beer), with lunch+dinner sandwich.
Hot beer tasted like gingery sweet drink. I will try making it!
That's it for this day. It was short. I went to bed early, but prepared for jogging in the next day in early morning :)
A sign stopped my step in the day.
I brought my Nokia 520 from U.S. This phone is not supposed to have SIM lock.
I got Play (play.pl) prepaid SIM card in the shopping mall for 5zł (no-phone number deal, just internet). However, I had to ask my husband to contact AT&T to give unlock key code to use any prepaid SIM card. It could have taken 3 days.
So, if you have AT&T's "SIM free" type of phone, be aware. You probably need to contact support before the trip to get the unlock key.
