Visit to Poland
Went with some friends to the city within the city, Hamtramck, the city within Detroit that once had more Polish residents than lived in Poland. Like everything else around Detroit, this city has changed and has financial problems, but there is still a wonderful essence of a past culture available in the form of a new museum, a wonderful art center, a bakery, a meat store, and a really wonderful restaurant.
This last photo shows my half eaten dinner - in the Polish Village restaurant. I had kielbasa, stuffed cabbage, sauerkraut, mashed potatoes, potato pancakes, and city chicken - and every bite I had was better than the one before. I've never had a restaurant meal as good - every single item was delicious. I didn't eat all of it - I have a great big doggy bag to have for dinner tomorrow (and maybe the next day, too.)
