Happy New Year to everyone!

This blog will carry on as Yellerbelly Abroad which I update regularly (and have been doing for almost two years now) with photos of Warsaw as well as other happenings in my life. By all means pop over for a look and let me know what you think!

Many thanks for all your comments and hopefully see you ‘on the other side’…

Respite

Due to a hectic schedule at the moment, I have made the decision to halt posts on Warsaw Daily Photo until the New Year.

Thanks again to all the followers and I sincerely hope to be back online soon.

All the best,

Yellerbelly

Party Pierogi

Considered to be the dish which Poland is famous for, Pierogi is good for all occasions. Whether eaten in a high-class restaurant, in a Warsaw market place cafe with a cold beer, or home-cooked for a few friends – its hard not to tuck in and enjoy them. And as in last night, they can always be washed down with a few vodka shots!

A fading clockface

Another evening view of the city centre showing the clock tower fading as the mist descends over the city, bringing with it a winter chill and thoughts of staying indoors with a good film and homemade broth. Winter has its attractions…

Hanging Christmas decorations on the Palace of Culture

Every year we see Christmas decorations on huge buildings, but we rarely think about how they get there and who puts them up. They started hanging them today on the Palace of Culture as it was the first dry day for over a week. If you enjoy climbing high-rise buildings, this is definately the job for you!

Independence Day (Święto Niepodległości)

There have been celebrations ongoing today around Warsaw with the President of Poland speaking in Plac Piłsudskiego surrounded by dignitaries and members of the governmental elite.

However, the weather is wet and miserable and the televised events showed umbrellas bending in the wind and plenty of grim expressions. So here’s a much more cheerful image I took on the same day last year; the Polish flag flying in the wind attached to a crane at the Złote 44 construction site (there are now no more cranes here or construction works!).

Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

This is where the Independence Day celebrations will occur tomorrow – Plac Piłsudskiego near the Old Town. At the eastern end of Saski Gardens is the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier which has its own eternal flame and 24-hour honor guard. It is one of many monuments erected after World War 1 to commemorate the unidentified soldiers who died fighting for their country.




Welcome to Warsaw Daily Photo!

I'm a Brit in Warsaw and this is a daily photo blog of my life (currently) in and around the city and in Eastern Europe generally. The challenge is to post a picture a day of something interesting in Europe which I find when I'm out and about (occasionally dipping into my archives) and say a few words about it. Hope you like it and feel free to leave a comment!
