Greetings from Białystok.  For those of you who don't have your Poland geography down pat, Białystok is about three hours north-northeast of Warsaw near the border with Belarus.  We had a lot of opportunities to meet with other people today, first with a group of young and middle aged adults who meet with Don and Betty at an open air cafe twice per month to practice English, then again in the evening for pizza at Don and Betty's home with a group of students from Sweeden who are studying medicine in English at the medical university in Białystok to become medical doctors.  Don and Betty have a wonderful outreach to such a diverse group of people.  It's probably fair to say that we have all fallen in love with Polish food, Polish architecture, and the people we have met, both Polish and non-Polish.  It has been fun to see how alike we are with people who superficially seem so different from us.  We are all doing well and send our love to friends and family back home.

  4. At crack4sure, we want to facilitate the ambitious IT professionals who want to pass different certification exams in a C_TFG61_2211 Certification short period of time but find it tough to spare time for detailed studies or take admission in preparatory classes.

  5. It sounds like a day filled with enriching connections and cultural exchange! Meeting with both locals and international students who are passionate about learning English must have been a truly rewarding experience. It's heartwarming to hear how much you've enjoyed the Polish food, architecture, and most importantly, the people you've met. Your comment about finding similarities despite cultural differences is a beautiful reminder of our shared humanity. We're all glad you're having a wonderful trip and sending our love back from home
