PS21 - New Year's 2006

January 1st, 2006: Sylwester and Will

Video: Pluznica New Year's Fireworks (January 1st, 2006)

Scenes from New Year's Eve at TRGP in Pluznica, Poland:

My host sister Paulina and her husband Przemek.

"The party was awesome. We had a lot of Polish wedding music, which meant those giant circle dances with everyone jumping and kicking and having a great time. You canít not have a good time at a party like that."

I think these are some members of Michelle's old host family.

This was just before 12, and we went outside for the stroke of midnight:

After midnight: (see fireworks, with my swearing and carousing blanked out)

January 1st:

"Today I slept in.

"I woke up a few times, and when I was brazen enough to turn about in my bed, my stomach would begin doing cartwheels. Around 1530 I had a hearty breakfast and later we all gathered around the kitchen table to have something approaching a conversation, relying heavily on dictionaries. We have fun nevertheless. I gesticulate a lot when I speak, so even if I havenít got exactly the right word, itís not difficult to be understood. Sometimes it just takes a little time."
