Day 237 – Warszawa, Poland
Ryan and I continued to explore Warsaw today. This afternoon we visited many interesting parts of the city including the beautiful Royal Baths Park. The Park is home to the stunning Palace on the Water and a grand statue of Fryderyk Franciszek Chopin (my favorite composer). Fryderyk Chopin grew up in Warsaw and completed his musical education here. It was wonderful to see Chopin’s Warsaw. Modern day Warsaw is undergoing a tremendous boom. I am extremely proud of how Warsaw is evolving and rebounding from its sad past.
