While I was in Poland, a friend was visiting an international school just outside of Warsaw. I decided to ride along on the bus to see what I might find in a small town nearby. Once outside of Warsaw, there were many fields and I was initially drawn to a solitary tree. As I wandered through the field I spotted a couple pulling up beets, and then a couple of men winterizing the turnip crop. My language was limited to hello, please, and thank you, but with that and some smiles I managed to spend a little bit of time with them. It was a dreary autumn day, but I had some good moments with these people.
