Poland in Summer

The Palace Gardens at fabulous Lancut in high summer
My good friend Simon Target, the brilliant English film maker who lives in Australia, recently sent me a really uplifting and joyful short film (5 minutes) he made in a highly picturesque town on the Vistula River called Kazimierz Dolny, about  150 kms from Warsaw.

Do have a look as it quickly overturns the ridiculous received idea of Poland only being dull, grey and depressing.


He and his wife, a Polish medical doctor Beata Zatorska, have also produced two (from a projected four) prize-winning superb cook books set around the seasons in Poland. There are recipes and moving personal reminiscences illustrated with some of the most artistic and finest photographs of the country I have yet seen.
