This year the crazy ones (some of us anyway) are in poland for new year’s eve.
After flying to Warsaw on thursday, spending one night there, we (Adrien, Przemeck, Nico, Bartok and me) drove our car to Goldap, a small town on the border to Russia.
Before we culd leave we had to do some shopping though. Particularly for gloves and other stuff to keep warm. While we were searching for a shop to buy a sleeping bag for Nico, (there appears to be a vast shortage of sport utility shops in warsaw, this might be a business opportunity) we came across what must be a warsaw speciality. The never ending 300 metres.
People strive to be helpful. but when they themselves have no idea, they simply send into a random direction and say: “it is only 300 metres.” Of course the shop never appears and the 300 metre never end. We spend three hours walking “only 300 metres”. I think we saw most of warsaw.
Anyway, back to driving to Goldap.
The weather was so bad (snow drifts, icey roads and rain) that we took 5.5 hours for what should have taken us about 4 hours. Still, considering the circumstances we made good time. The first bottle of wine was consumed in the car and several beers were liquidated in various pit stops.
When we finally arrived, the others, who had left before us had already gone to bed and we spend the rest of the night getting drunk.
Now, we are spending a little downtime until the party restarts in about 1 hour.
I will keep you posted, if I remain able to type.
