Didn’t help with the harvesting, though the human dynamo that is Michal was straight in and at it 😵
Me: contaminating the drinking water in our canteens with my under-rehearsed showering-in-the-tent technique 😨
Thunder and lightning all night in the mountains (at a present altitude of Kraków plus 111 metres)!
A magical, beautiful region.
An amazing day of amazing experiences.
Thank you Michal and Zuza: this day belongs to you.
