I can’t believe this is my last day here. The week flew by. On Thursday I talked to all kinds of kids; elementary, middle and high school. I was going to take a picture of the high school students, but then I got to talking with them and I forgot. Duh.
So is this one – it has at least 56 books in it. The title (very roughly translated by some Polish kids for me) is “Mr. Car and Knights Templar.” The series is the adventures of the guy who uses the funny-looking car as he explores for various historical artifacts. My 7th-grade informants assured me that they are great books.
I am speaking to 6th graders this afternoon, then dinner with some new friends who teach here, then back to the hotel to pack. Tomorrow I fly to London, then Chicago, and then finally, to Syracuse. BH tells me the dog keeps pacing around my office and whimpering. I miss her, too. And BH. And everyone.
I will try to have a Polish attitude as I leave; happiness colored with a wee bit of melancholy. I am so grateful I had the opportunity to hang out at the school, see a tiny bit of the city, take my first taste of Eastern Europe. And I am sad that I have to leave. And I am happy I will soon be home. And I hope I shall come back.
