I spent a very enjoyable day with Grzegorz in the small towns & countryside east of Krakow. Greg is welcoming, engaging, knowledgeable, attentive, & just a very pleasant person to spend the day with. I was very grateful that he responded to a native New Yorker's interest in Krakow's tram network. Greg was also patient with my personal observations of comparisons to the northeast of Poland. He very ably & discreetly acted as my translator for a guided tour of a re-created Polish village. Fascinating tour.
