And I reached the conclusion that Warsaw is a boring city.
Don't get me wrong, it's a very INTERESTING city. There's just not that much going on. Plenty of museums to get the history nerds hot and bothered; Medieval Art, Science, Modern Art... as well as Old Town with the Royal Castle and everything - BEAUTIFUL. But speaking as a book worm and geek I felt rather let down. My company and I found two comic book stores in the city centre; one where not a single item was in English and the other where, lo and behold, we had a whole shelf of comics in English. But no English-speaking staff to guide us. Plenty of young nerds, not a word of English. Aesthetically, Warszawa looks as if torn between USSR concrete block efficiency and modern glass superstructures.
As a foodie I was thrilled though! We only went to vegan places throughout our stay (which meant two a day during three days time) and WOW. I recommend everyone to try Tel-Aviv Food & Wine (best damn hummus and tempeh I've ever had the pleasure of putting in my mouth), Lokal Vegan Bistro (they did NOT skimp on the chanterelles and also had ridiculously handsome staff, like DAMN!) and Krowarzywa (delicious vegan burgers to die for).

I'm going back later this year to check out all I missed this time around.
