Last breakfast at the Warsaw Hilton included fresh herring with sour cream. The best I have ever had, and a delicious cup of coffee from that divine coffee machine. All the staff pronounces Dunn as Dune. It’s cute and sounds Irish.

Magda Smolka was promptly there at the meeting time. We headed for her car and proceeded to the town of Sonsk.

We headed for Ciemniewko in Magda’s car.

WARSAW: Woke up to a beautiful day in Warsaw with 73 F weather! The entire city is in springtime with flowers in bloom everywhere. Last week it was snowing at home and I lost all my spring flowers to a hard frost.

April 19, 2014. Saturday

And so it begins, our trip to Poland. Chilly here in Cleveland, but the sun is shining. We are staying at the Hampton Inn Airport because they offer free parking during our trip and a free shuttle to the airport. After doing research on my Polish roots for 25+ years, I am finally going to visit the ancestral homeland. My husband Mike is looking forward to all the good Polish meals.
