On my third day in Warsaw, Poland, I took a relaxing lay back day. I was wondering around Warsaw by myself on my third day because my friend she had a 20 pages research paper due within a day and she decided to stay in our Airbnb to work on it. My first stop for the day was Copernicus Science Centre right by the Vistula River.

The second day in Warsaw I went to Palace of Culture and Science. Palace of Culture and Science was the very first building I saw when I first left Warsaw airport and got out of the metro in downtown Warsaw area, and I also saw it every day because my Airbnb happened to be right across from it. Palace of Culture and Science was a gift from the Soviet Union to Poland during the communist occupation era. At first, Polish people resented it because of its communist origin, but now not so much.

I apologize for the lack of blog posts for the past month. I have been busy traveling and dealing with school. After working full-time over summer break, the day I had long been waiting for had finally arrived – the day for me to depart Chicago and to start my journey in Europe. Moving out from my apartment was a pain, the monthly storage price for all my stuff was passable. Nonetheless, 8 hours later, I landed in Warsaw, Poland. First stop right out of the airport was Old Town of Warsaw, not that I particularly wanted to see the neighborhood right away, but because I was starving. After some delicious pierogies, I walked around Old Town to check it out.
