In May before doing the school teaching program in Poland I spent a day with a guide who took me to places east of Siedlce that require an auto for access. I have written about some of these adventures in previous posts, but am still catching up with life after a busy summer.
After lunch in Zaborek, we drove a short distance to a church located in the countryside. Here is the sign for it.
Here is what the inside of the church looks like.

On Saturday morning we had a very nice breakfast and then walked out to the road in front of Reymontowka to board the bus. I had the seat immediately behind the driver, so I had a good view of the road and enjoyed watching the GPS.
We parked along the railroad track about 3 blocks away from the galleria and then a had a long walk through the galleria to get to the cinema area. I was really glad to find a place to sit down when this walk was done.
The campers of course went immediately to the concession line.
The film we saw was the Big Friendly Giant.
After the film we walked back to the bus and from the luggage area appeared crates holding sandwiches and bottles of water.
Our next destination was the Copernicus Science Museum. I had been to this museum before and asked them not to buy me a ticket to walk through it again. But when we arrived I was totally puzzled. The line was coming out the door and about two blocks long. I couldn't figure out why so many people had decided to go to the museum that on a sunny summer day. The museum was not showing any special collection -- the whole thing was a mystery.
People in the line had to wait until others left before they would be admitted. And it appeared to me everyone in line was local, not tourists. I spent the time in the cafeteria area with my nose stuck in a book. It was a good place to people watch.
After about 2 hours we walked back to the bus and then made our way to the outskirts of Warsaw. We stopped at a gas station and the luggage area opened up again.
Back to Reymontowka we had a very nice kolacja, too.
I so enjoy these kind of experiences.
