Yesterday's trip from Warsaw to the Baltic coast ended up taking 8 hours. Quite a long haul on pretty bad Polish roads - 550 kilometres all up. No autobahns here!
Here's a beautiful statue of Garuda, the Divine Bird Carrier of Vishnu. He sits in this pose of prayer in the garden in front of the Warsaw Hare Krishna Temple. I took this picture just before leaving, and asked for Garuda's blessings for a safe journey.
We did a quick drive-through of Warsaw on the way North. Here's one of the very spacious squares in this very large stately city.
The route North was varied - woods, lakes, agricultural fields, little villages, big towns - the whole range one would expect in a trans-country drive.
Here we are, just a few kilometres to journey's end. Oh, those unpronouncable place names!
