Aleteia - published on 07/22/16

Aleteia lets pilgrims share their first impressions of Poland; lots of information here as well...

This is kind of charming — Aleteia’s new Polish-language edition took to the streets of Warsaw to ask four questions of  World Youth Day pilgrims headed to Krakow.
2. Your favorite Polish dish…
3. Repeat, please, these words
4. Did you learn any words in Polish?

(Psssst, if you find yourself being asked these questions, here’s a crib sheet for question #1!)

More stuff…
