For this challenge I have chosen a collection of photographs that will acquaint you not only with my hometown, Gliwice, but also with a couple of things that I like and that make me happy. This is a special place for me in two ways. Firstly, because I love my country and my town. At the risk of sounding presumptuous I would say it is one of the best places to be, but I know that we all have that special place that we like the most, so I will leave it at that 🙂 Secondly, because now I live so far from my hometown, across the ocean, and on a different continent altogether, and I miss it 🙂 As to the things that make me happy – some of them are things that most of us like; others are delicacies available only there, so they are doubly dear to my heart 🙂
As you view the photographs you will see the apartment house where I grew up; couple of interesting places in town; my favorite cafe; some of my favorite sweets, a selection of home made goat cheeses; an assortment of delicious sweet breads; and lastly a sample of what you could buy in the way of sweets at the store. This “trip” in my hometown is by no means exclusive; there is a lot more places and foods there that I like – I simply have not taken photographs of them all 🙂
