So I'll start by explaining my title. Masakra literally translates to Massacre in polish, its kinda like a slang word but its funny because Polish people use it all the time. Like if we are teaching a first lesson and talk about the Apostasy we will be like "Sadly many things have changed over such a long time" and the Pole will agree saying "Yeah, Massacre". Its pretty funny.

So Tuesday was kinda funny because we spend like 2 hours working with the Polish Bureaucracy to get a permit to put up these banner things on the Planty park which surrounds the rynek. We use them when we contact there but apparently we need a permit. So we went to the first Urząd government building then they gave us 2 different building to try. We tried both and no luck, they ended up telling us that we could apply for a permit but we would never get it because the Planty is some kind of Cultural park and they don't give anyone permits. So that was a bummer. But it was funny because while we were waiting in an office some guy came in and dropped off a big stack of folders full of paperwork. My companion made the comment "Government..." and the guy at the desk started laughing because apparently he spoke English. It was funny. Gave us some comedic relief from the whole having to deal with Government.
Okay, sorry this email is short. I cant think of any other crazy good stories from this week so I'm probably going to end it here.
