Warsaw to Suwalki

Tonight, our last night in Poland, we are in the extreme north east very near the Lithuania border. The scenery on the train ride today reminded me of northern Michigan and Wisconsin., lots of trees and frozen marshy land.

Suwalki is a town of 70,000 people. It seems like a prosperous town. We walked from the train station to our hotel and then went out exploring. We are at 54 degrees north. That’s well north of anything in the continental United States. The third picture below is our hotel.

For dinner we ate at Karczma Polska Restaurant. It was a warm and cozy setting.

We started with potato sausage.

Then Duke had pork tenderloin and I had chicken with an almond crust.

The apple cake we had for desert was wonderful.

Today was our last train ride of the trip. Tomorrow we take the bus to Vilnius, Lithuania.
