Still have fond memories of this plce and hope it is still there to be enjoyed if I manage a visit in future to Bielsko-Biala, a unique Polish town – the only one with more Protestant than Catholic churches.
This was one of the compensations of life as an auditor, going with teams of nice people to work in different locations and then having the evening to discover new places and tastes and sounds. Simply brilliant.
What a pity EU lawmakers and politicians have done so much to destroy the audit profession as an attractive route for bright young minds today.

Music used: “Morning has broken” Cat Stevens and “Oh Lori” by Brothers Alessi
Languages used: English
Animals/plants featured: Local plants, eg Jacaranda
The noon gun goes “bang” at mid day, but the camera doesn’t give an impression of how that goes through the body. This video was silenced and reights claimed because of the use of Cat Stevens version of “Morning has Broken”, which I found interesting. I have to be treated as a “pirate” (ha-harr, me hearties) for using a snippet of his song to accompany some images on a free film, but he is doing just fine making a record of an old Highland hymn and making a mint out of it to use for jihad against Christians and nobody says tat he was pirating or misusing the old Highland hymn to make money. Double standards much?
Additionally is “Oh Lori” by the Brothers Alessi, a very nice piece of mood music from the 1970s which is one of my all-time favorites of all time.

A very nice lady helps me to get an idea of what the click consonants of Xhosa sound like.
This video managed to get a share of silly comments from people who don’t really get it. Never mind. Tidak apa apa.

The Spanish know how to have fun. If something is fun, then they do it, and if it stops being fun then they stop, and do something else.
I only regret that right now I cannot recall the restaurant. I could for a good while but 5 years have elapsed and it is gone.
