Day 21: Test(e)ing Times and Warszawa

Now – before I start, I need to alert you that the videos and the text have different content! No one likes it when I repeat myself 😉

I’m in Vienna at the moment, and going to Budapest tomorrow. I’ve had an interesting experience here in regards to my health. The video explains why and how I thought I was going to lose a testicle…

However, before I take you there, come back with me to Warsaw (Warszawa) where I spent three wonderful days with my friend, Bo (Boguslaw). There aren’t many occasions when you connect so deeply with someone in such a short period of time – on so many levels. It made me feel human again, and I really didn’t want to leave.

Having said that, Warsaw is a pretty ugly city… (No offence, but it’s true…) Bo said that I needed to “embrace the ugliness”… So, we went to the top of “Ugly Building”, which happened to be the Centre of Science and Culture (seriously – apples and oranges), which had a wonderful ugly painting of the ugly building in the foyer. Brilliant!

I got quite upset leaving though, and had my first “down moment” since being away. Chilling out with Bo for those few days really relaxed me, and it was so nice to just enjoy each other’s company without wondering what to do next, and just living “in the moment”.

A highlight would have to be karaoke at a gay bar (after many vodka shots…) where I received a rousing response from the bar after “Truly Madly Deeply”, and Bo got to his knees during Robbie William’s “Angels” (I’m waiting for Bo to deny that happening :p)… then us stealing the spotlight later, but that’s not for here!

OH! Polish pop culture is AMAZINGLY hilarious! I have a new favourite soap star Malgorzata Kozuchowska – who is amazing. She goes to the opening of an envelope, and has three security guards following her around the shopping centre EVEN THOUGH SHE DOESN’T EVEN HAVE A SHOW ANYMORE! Even Dannii walks Ethan around Chapel Street by herself! Malgorzata was on a show called “M jan miłość” (translated to L for Love), which I guess is the Polish version of say, Packed to the Rafters. It’s the highest rating drama in Poland. Local media are busy speculating what she will do next… I CAN’T WAIT!

Anyway – here’s what you’ve probably been waiting for…
