Mazur in Africa

You probably remember our Roman is a member of Royal African Society. He is also a director for the Polish University Abroad, one of the biggest Polish charity organisations outside Poland. Now he is in Kenya with some European Union academic research project regarding future reforms in public space communication. It’s a complex matter for all of us. He says it’s a very big challenge to let kids of our kids feel at home in all parts of the Earth. As you see he feels at home in Mombasa area. A lot of local people speak not only English but also several communicative words in Polish. That’s because of descendants of Polish WW2 soldiers, first of all. Roman visited the Commonwealth Cemetery to pay tribute to the second world war heroes. He also met things he doesn’t want to talk about. Poverty in Poland is much different from the one in Africa. He only says we ought to thank God we are able to help Africans to develop their part of the world and prevnt African youth from finding Europe as the only way to a better life. Isn’t our Roman clever guy? Yes, he is!! 👏🏻🤔👌🏻❤️

Storks returning to Masuria

People say that storks have started to return from Africa to Masuria this year. It can be strange when you take into account how cold was last week of February and the the first one in March. On the other hand, there’s no better place for safe and easy living than our Masuria. We love storks! Storks seem to know it very well 😀 Such a good message via

Masurian ice cream

A big bit warmer in Masuria now. No -10C anymore. We've got +10C at last and we are looking forward to summer. This is an effect our Grazyna and Roman are in Kenya now. +30C over there! The best thing to do in such circumstances is what? Eating ice cream, obviously! 😀 The one you see above in Daga's and Grazyna's hands was made out of the organic milk. And where the best organic milk comes from? Masuria, of course. 🙂

Masurian Men

We celebrate Men’s Day internationally in November but locally we did it yesterday. Our boys play their league matches on Saturdays. Our Masurian friend, Maria Olszowska from Mrągowo, has sent a picture of classic Masurian statue called “Prussian Lady”. Nobody knows these days what were such statues made for in ancient times. One of theories is that they are in fact not women but fighters or even warriors. Which one looks like “Prussian Lady” more, Maks or Bruno? 🙂

A rose from the willow

An unique rose for all women today. We’ve got International Women’s Day. What you see above is not a flower, in fact. It’s a kind of safe home for a small insect, similar to mosquitos. They are hiding inside for winter. Happy I.W.D. then!

Bid a castle in Masuria!

Something unusual takes place in Masuria tomorrow. There will be a bidding for the Teutonic castle in Szymbark. As a matter of fact, it’s not fully operational but the price is a bargain. About 400,000 GBP for such a nice piece of history can be recognised only as a good deal. What’s important, the castle is located in the heart of the European Union. Polish enthusiasts of the history try to win the bidding, however other parties are not excluded. Details: GO...

Love PL100 Checkerboard

Poland celebrate the 100th anniversary of independence this year. Our family in London help one of the oldest charity organisations - the Polish University Abroad, to develop in global world. They start very unique seminar comprising of many patriotic issues. The first one relates to Ignacy Jan Paderewski - one of the most famous pianists in Polish history, who made a lot in 1918 for independent Poland. As a matter of fact, our artist - Daria, also takes - somehow - part in that event at PUA. She made a simple, white and red bracelet that will be worn by our Grażyna during that event. Daria named her creation just: “Love PL100 Checkerboard” ❤️🇵🇱
