m is for love
03.15 room 202 at hotel sanvit, went to bed early and woke up now, the birds are already rioting, but they were still singing when i went to bed at about nine in the evening. don't these birds ever get tired? this is weird. i think because it is saturday night, i'm also hearing some nightlife stragglers out there going home slowly. some lurchy singing and amiable teasing. some footsteps. but i can hardly make any of it out because the birds are so freakin loud.
by the way i am running out of pasta do zęmbów.
07.22 woke up again. there's a soap opera on TVP called "M jak milośc" which i think means "M is for love".
jak się masz? how are you?
08.45 rynek. i've been walking around the town sitting, smoking, taking movies, listening to the amplified services of two different churches.
13.30 i'm sitting outside the museum/castle by the deep well. a child in a pale orange mac is crying. now she's laughing and running. the top floor exhibit of beksinski paintings is pretty astonishing. i can't imagine a book could capture it (but bought a book anyway). beksinski is from sanok, painted amazing morbidly fantastical scenes, i think the guy could only see ghosts. a couple years ago somebody murdered him. and also his son had committe suicide and his wife had died. pani said he wasn't too famous in the west, cuz some people maybe thought his work not high art, like tacky or something, indeed some of the paintings could be scifi book covers. but the ideas and techniques are mad good.
later we go back to the same cafe on the rynek, malgorzata and christophe join us for snacks and drinks. malgorzata says:
"when cat it's not here, the mouse will dance."
they are going to hungary tomorrow to a place called berec fiürdo which is supposed to have special water that will help christophe with his rheumatism.
thanks to pani and baz i have an appointment tomorrow with a certain marek milczanowski, cabdriver, who will drive me to the airport at kraków.
because i was having such a nice time chilling in sanok, i decided against trying to arrange an adventure to oświęcim (auschwitz). maybe i wanna do that on a different trip.
