Warsaw Poland - Perhaps your readers would enjoy some pix from Warsaw Poland. These were shot by eldest son Michael , whose job makes him a globe trotter. Warsaw was really cloudy and rainy when I was there. A few near the hotel next to the Cultural Museum built by Stalin as a “gift” to the Poles. And also near Old Town.
