Pope John Paul the Second statue, Krosno, Poland

Today we went to the town of Krosno in South east Poland to do some shopping. Years back, the large open air market there was the only place locally to buy clothes, cheap food and  other stuff, even though it’s in a different country. In return, the Poles from that area would come to Svidnik in North East Slovakia to buy alcohol and cigarettes. Now with globalisation and Internet shopping, everything’s changed and the market is just endless stalls all selling the same clothes and foot ware at the same prices.

I remember the overwhelming emotion in Poland when Pope John Paul the Second died. The entire country went into mourning.
