30-4. POLAND

Poland now is a member of EU and the old border-station was empty and forlorn. In the little Polish town of Kostrzyn we needed to charge. We spotted an open car-repair-shop and the friendly people immediately gave us a place to connect. They closed early for Saturday, and we continued along the Oder-river on small roads passing lakes, swamps and flood-plains - and a village with storks. Near the border-crossing to Germany we stopped at a huge market in an old industrial area. Juras Auto Serwis was closed but had a socket outside. Thank you Juras! On the market we bought Russian champagne, beer from Tatra, Polish honey and ate German bratwurst. Then it was time to go home through spring-green forests with many memorials for the dead in WW2. After an interesting day in Poland we returned to Berlin, quite exhausted from spring and sun.
