As we have said before, we ate REALLY well on this "Patrol"!  Bernie Burdt is about to enjoy another sumptuous breakfast.

 

                             On to Fort Legionow..................
 

 

 

 

 

 

 
'The light at the end of the tunnel' either means there is a train coming or in this case, a Sharkhunters Member down a long, dark and forbidden shaft.  As we see above right, this tunnel is not yet cleared and thus - dangerous......but not to Sharkhunters Members.

 

 

In this chamber, what appears to be the chapel.....................
   
                                                                        ..................is really a storage room for movie props.

 
Workers have removed the roof from the central rotunda to allow the dampness of the chambers below to vent outside and dry out.

 


     then onward to the Citadel
 
Above right - You REALLY didn't want to be taken through this gate back in the old days, for this is the 'Execution Gate' and those who were led through this gate............did not return.  Well, maybe they did, but without their heads.

And you didn't want to ride in this carriage (below left).  This was the last ride a prisoner had before his final destination - Siberia!
 

 
                                                                                                 Above right - If you don't read Polish, the name would be anglicized
                                                                                                 into "Joseph Conrad" as this prisoner was the grandfather of the
                                                                                                 American writer of that name.

 



 
                                                             Walking through these gates...............no problem.

 
                        Sharkhunters Members on this "Patrol" who saw combat

Both below - the ancient palace of the Polish Kings.  How old would you think this building is today?
 
Monika, our guide (above left) is OLDER than this ancient medieval palace - and she is only thirty years of age!  This palace was totally destroyed during the war, and this is a complete and accurate replica built after the end of the war.


      Into the old town market square of Warsaw.
 
Upper left - if you are not on a Sharkhunters "Patrol", this is how you might travel.................

 

 
                                       Above right - We see a newly wed couple walking past the symbol of the city of Warsaw - a
                                                      mermaid with a raised sword.  Doesn't seem to be a really friendly mermaid.

 
Above left - this guy stood absolutely motionless until someone dropped coins in his dish by his feet.  Then he would shake and move about, all the while ringing some bells.  We watched one kid unsuspectingly drop some coins in the dish - scared the hell out of the kid!

                 the Warsaw Military Museum

 

 

 

   

       And now to the Museum of the Warsaw Uprising.

 

 
Above right - with such printing presses in basements etc., they were able to print fliers, handbills, secret newspapers and even money.

  Our last dinner on this "Patrol" and we had great local folkloric entertainment.
