Palm Sunday Wroclaw

Wroclaw Town Hall

 I went to Mass today thought it would be nice to experience Palm Sunday mass in Poland they buy/make dry flowers instead of palms like in the US.  I was walking from my hostel and I saw this one girl had this huge one and flowers galore she thought she was tough Shit and well she was. I thought she might be going to mass so I followed for several blocks and arrived at Church of Sts. Maurice I decided to get some dried flowers, they were selling out the side church well it was actually a donation. I asked if I could take a photo of the flowers on the table, the kid nodded yes and then he picked up one and did a silly pose so I took his photo. I went in and the mass was on I did not realize it was the end of an earlier mass.  At the end every one took part in  a procession up the aisle behind the priest and the altar boys. I then went and got a seat for the next mass which was totally in Polish the only word the same was AMEN. I also noticed the priest said cheesecake or at least it sounded like it.

I walked back to town and was in search of several places on my walking guide. I decided to have a chicken kabob plate that I spotted yesterday, plenty of chicken and veggies cheese, salad and a bunch of fries. I found yet another church and went inside it was beautiful. There were a quite a few churches to visit but so many of them had a mass on so I was unable to walk around and take photographs.  I can not believe how many masses there were at each church as many as 10 at some churches totally unreal.

Walking around last night had seen this real character rambling around town yelling hello and going on in Polish quite a character with a santa like hat. I had some change today and I showed my camera and I indicated photo I gave him the change and he was quite pleased.

I found the
Love Bridge where people put padlocks declaring their love there were at least a 1,000. I found a nice spot and had an ice cream cone and people watched, which is one of my fave things to do on  a trip. I am tired again probably early to bed, like last night I slept 11 hour.
