This is part one of the Ukraine series – the only Ukrainian series I’ve made so far as I haven’t been for 10 years and I did not use to take footage in those days – many good business trips went to waste! We have a meal in Krasnystaw, stay the night in Tomaszow Lubelski, cross as Hrybenne and go via Rava Rus’ka towards Lviv Continue reading “Driving to the Ukraine (Ukraine series #1/10)”→

Warsaw Voice selected these two amazing people as joint winners of the chair of the two decades of Polish freedom, and 20 years also of the Warsaw Voice. This is the premier English language weekly in Poland. Lech Walesa and Leszek Balcerowicz need little if any introduction, and this great video, showing more of the evening and their speeches than was shown on TV, is a fine piece to place at the 3/4 spot in my collection here. We are three quarters of the way to the thousand videos goal I want to achieve before introducing some new ideas and formats. I hope Polish speakers will enjoy the speeches of the two great Polish heroes. I am aware that the sound level is not high enough, but I had to work with what I had. For non-Polish speakers, I hope you get a glimpse of what was a tremendous evening, one of my life’s highlights so far.
Don’t miss the Grupa Strategia logo on the board at the back! We were sponsors of the event.

Here’s the rest of the Pomeranian footage that you saw something of in the Walcz video recently, this time off the Vado. The fine meal we had in great company in the Hunting Palace hotel in Świdwin. I can tell you that Pomerania is a fine part of the world. I always like going there. Continue reading “Pomeranian Interlude”→
