St. Marcina in Klobuck

Linking to Our World Tuesday

Church Steeple 

Pathway on the side of the church with 1339  Klobuck.

Pathway on the opposite of the church with 1480 to 2007.
Cousins: Left to right: Ruth and Tadek - 4th cousins, Elle is Tadek's wife and she is leaning on the table, next to her in white is her sister.

Center of the church inside.

Sacrament table.

Tadek and Karoliny (his grandniece) came and picked me up from my hotel at 1:30 PM on Friday. Karoliny spoke excellent English and she was my translator. 

For lunch, Elle fixed a marvelous homemade meal of tomato soup of which you added either rice or noodles. Then the main course of golabki (stuffed cabbage rolls), shredded beets, roasted potatoes, fasole (beans), and apple compote. Smachna!

Tadek escorted me around Klobuck, picked up information and post cards about the city for me. Later, we went back to his home for desert which Elle had gotten from her favorite bakery and let me tell you, it was almost too much. Elle said I needed to try everything and I tried but I just couldn't get those last two pieces in.

You are looking at salt and pepper hugging on the right. There was cheese cake, apple and rhubarb tort, berry creme tort, berry tort, chocolate loaf and pound cake. Yum, yum and yum (Smachna). 
They treated me royally.

I love old churches - the smell, the art, the peace...

The hospitality has been great, when you met cousins. I'm not surprised that you could not eat it all.

That's some pathway - I reckon a lot of time, effort and love went into its creation. Can't wrap my head around the date though - staggering! (Thank you for commenting on my blog again)
