Now that December has arrived, the snow has melted! Don't know if it will last, but today was sunny and mild. Great for walking around, which most people in Krakow seem to be doing. The main square is now filled with Christmas decorations, a stage with ongoing music of various types (school choirs, folk singers, various bands), and many little wooden kiosks selling food and handicrafts. It constantly amazes us how busy this big square is, even in winter. It's obviously not just a tourist venue, but a place Krakowians (Krokowites?) visit regularly.

John and I are both recovering from bad colds but expect to be in fine shape for our trip to Warsaw on Tuesday. We're looking forward to seeing all the Fulbrighters again at our mid-year meeting. I've emailed everyone to set up a book exchange - should be fun to see what others have been reading.
