WATCH: Pierogi popular as the pope at #WYD2016

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…

Take the PollAre you stoked for World Youth Day?

We really hope you pilgrims are keeping your cameras at the ready to take pictures and videos that you can upload to social media with a simple hashtag (#KrakowtoRome) to be entered in our contest. You might get a free trip to Rome out of it! Good Luck!
