If I was drinking vodka neat, I always preferred Zubrovka. It tasted better. When we went to Krakow, however, I found a better vodka! It's still Zubrovka, but it's premium and the color of whiskey. The taste is so smooth and doesn't burn like other vodkas. If you can get your hands on some, try it. I don't know if it's available in the US.

It turns out I've found a use for old CDs. I used two of them to make this ornament. You could pad the ornament if you want; I didn't. I just laced the front over one CD and the backing fabric over the other, then sewed them together using the gold cording. Voila! A pretty ornament that's got some recycling, too.
Normally Andreas would never do something like this, but he indulged me in Krakow. We went to a place that had a set dinner and a show. I wanted to see if anything looked familiar to me from watching my grandfather as a child. It wasn't, but that's not surprising. Some of the songs and dances were vaguely familiar, though. The area they had to work with was tiny! The show was good, and I have video of it. I'll try to put the video up soon.

Raspberry pierogies! They're awesome and were for sale at a little fair behind St. Mary's in Krakow. I had a couple of plates of them while we were there. We also had lunch there one day. There were flavorful sausages and roast potatoes and perfectly kosher bright green pickles. The cole slaw was good too! I've found food at markets to be either excellent or awful. Either way, it's cheap, so try it!
This is a picture of the yarn shop we discovered in Frankfurt. The service is excellent and the owner very friendly! I showed you what I bought from her several posts ago. Most of that stash is here with me on vacation in the US so I have something to do in the car. Her shop is right on the 18 tram line next to a stop!
