Semper invicta

Syreną w herbie swoim szczyci się Warszawa, 
Z syreny jednej grobu Neapolu sława. 
Coś więcej nad Neapol ma Warszawa przecie, 
Warszawa miast królowa na sarmackim świecie. 

[Józef Epifani Minasowicz]

  15. Nice poem, Jarek. I had to get Google to translate if for me as it is the only one in the house who knows Polish. I don't know Polish but I do know the square. It was dry the day I was there and I used the rest room in a restaurant to the back of the photographer.
    Later we bought from a vender stand there a 17 mm high, 14 mm diameter, cylindrical ceramic container for kitchen utensils and a matching spoon rest. It is a popular Polish pattern, I have seen dish sets with the same pattern in stores here. Color was a predominant dark blue stenciled in with an array of holes showing the underneath ceramic of a mottled ivory or bone color. There was a brown set of lines around the top.
    We may have to come back as I broke the spoon rest and we haven't seen those in the States.

  18. A very classy balck and white shot. I so love mermaids and I even have a Barbie Mermaid doll! I like her because her fins slip off and she is a regular doll too! I am silly for dolls. I am enjoying your city and seeing the wolrd thru others eyes. Thank you and stop by for a visit soon. My post is in two parts but the link only takes you to the second one. Have a greta weekend.

  21. Prawda, coś jest w tej Syrence. Symbol potężny i tak jakoś Warszawa dzięki niej brzmi poważniej. Ktoś by powiedział, że stolica jak każda inna, ale każde miasto jest unikatowe, zwłaszcza nasze po II wojnie światowej.
