We arrived in Lublin last night, driving entirely at night. It wasn't too bad, actually -- the only problem was we got caught in a traffic jam leaving Warsaw and the drive took 3 hours instead of the 2-2.5 it should have. Today we went to the old town in Lublin, where we saw frescoes in the church. They had been graffitied, but it was actually pretty neat as the graffiti was from the 1600's. The frescoes themselves dated to 1418. Lublin, unlike Warsaw, wasn't completely destroyed in the war, so the buildings there, while often re-newed, haven't really been rebuilt from scratch so they are slightly more authentic.

Tomorrow we're planning to go to the farm and the spring, and possibly fit in a few more things.
