Some habits are good! This morning walk routine is pure pleasure, apart from the odd diagonal drunk declaiming loudly and incoherently. Today my main mission is to rephotograph a few things from yesterday and to revisit the columns and lions and hieroglyphics I missed when the camera absented itself from duty the other day. But there are always contingent delights.
Buildings and statues
Taras Szewczenko, a Ukrainian poet and artist with an amazing life story.
The Belweder Palace, used by the President and the government for ceremonial purposes, and as a residence for heads of state on official visits.
What we missed when the camera died
The pavilion in Łazienki with the columns and four spitting lions (or are they sheep with headphones?) is the Egyptian Temple, built in the 19th century, when it was a conservatory for fig trees. Today it houses the Museum of Scouting.
