I know this is long overdue, and this is going to be a lengthy post, but heres an update on the past three weeks. I’ve separated my weekends with different headings, so feel free to jump ahead if you wish! Auschwitz. When Mary Rose (AKA “MR”) and I arrived in Warsaw three weekends ago, I […]Read more "Long Overdue…"
So much has happened since my last post. Heres an update. Last weekend I had the privilege to visit Prague with one of my best friends here, Anna.
