The devil is in the details

Staying in a shitty hotel makes you appreciate the little details. For example, if the shower’s pressure is good, you tend to spend more time in it than you should, or if the breakfast’s scrambled eggs are good enough, that’s pretty much all you’ll have for breakfast. Everything to take your mind of the communist themed hotel which, I’m sure, they didn’t intend to have a “theme”…

Funny how some of the best food I’ve had in Poland is either Japanese, Indian or Mexican. At least the local beer is quite nice.

Mental note

In Poland, the sign for a men’s toilet is a triangle, and a circle for women’s.

Portugal-Poland

Just came back from watching the match. I didn’t know any portuguese in Warsaw but, thanks to a contact list with dozens of people, I found out where the guys from Contacto meet and enjoyed a game (even more if we’d won) in their company. Nice people, by the way.

And thank you, Pedro.

Łódź X Warszawa

I haven’t seen much of Warsaw until now but, so far, I like it more than Łódź. It’s more “international” (it has more tourists), more vibrant, and the tourist zones actually look like tourist zones, not like a very long street with restaurants with names in English.

For the record

There’s no real glamour in working in another country, unless:

  • you have the time to do some sightseeing
  • you actually know what you’re doing
  • the hotel you call home doesn’t actually suck

(I actually managed to get two of those points right.)

Pimp my blog

In the best “pimp my ride” style, I’ve changed the Last.fm‘s “Recently listened” widget on the right to my “Neighborhood Radio”. Why don’t you give it a listen? It’s not half bad, if I may say…
