Making Krakow Our Own

We had a late start to our day because of some fridge problems, and I realized that our apartment's visual appearance was deceiving to its actual function.

We decided to venture over to Galeria Krakowska, another mecca for materialism. It was sad to see such commercialism imposing on the Old Town.

That evening, I had my first jazz club experience, since it is surprisingly popular here in Poland. The club was located in an underground cellar, which made the performance much more intimate and memorable. The music was very soothing and someone mentioned that it was "free jazz." The bass player was especially talented, and I enjoyed his solo improvisation.
