Woke up today in a very creaky bed. All seven beds in the room make loud creaks when you move in them. An American from Deerfield, Illinois crashed into the room at midnight. Along with my new Polish friend and the American we took the tram and went to another youth hostel that charged 25 cents a night. But no hot water or even showers. Getting stinky. The American and I walked around the city which is very spaced out and very clean. The architecture is not impressive as most of Warszawa was bombed out in WW2. We then went to see the movie “Joe Kidd” with Clint Eastwood for 45 cents. It was in English with Polski subtitles. After the movie we found a restaurant and had a repulsive soup which I can only say was chicken throat soup. On our way back to the hostel we met two Norwegian guys and we all ended up at the Hotel Bristol for a $3.50 cover charge. We bought a bottle of Vinjak for $17. The place was very high class but an equal amount of high-class decadence. The Norwegian guy said the girls at the Hotel Bristol were “professional class”. One of the Norwegian guys got hammered and the other one was sober as a nun. We took a taxi to a nightclub called Maxims with no cover charge. Someone bought me a grapefruit juice and I danced with a Polish chickadee. Just before closing at about 4 a.m. a huge Polish man who was drunk as a skunk approached our table. He said he was a Polish weightlifting champion. He bought us a bottle of Spanish Cava and kept saying “Viva Canada. Viva America” .Anytime we mentioned another country he spat on the floor with anger. This is a man you want to keep in a good mood. We walked back to the youth hostel in the light and tried to crawl into bed silently without much success.
