Couchsurfing group

Tonight I went to another group of foreigners, primarily English-speaking ones.  It's a "couchsurfing" group, which sounds like basically a way to stay for free at others' homes.  There appears to be some sort of website associated with it, but I haven't been there myself.  Anyway, it was near the apartment and a good way to meet people.  Several of the others from the Language Exchange group (both English and Spanish nights) as well as some others I knew were there.

In chatting tonight, I may have set up a trip to go to the mountains.  "Go to the mountains" appears to be a popular activity around here, centering mostly around the town of Zakopane about two hours to the south of Krakow.  This puts it at the foothills of the Tatras mountains, which is the border with Poland and Slovakia.  I've kind of wanted to go there, and almost had an opportunity last weekend, but I'm nervous about going without a native speaker.  My understanding is that the further away you get from big cities, the worse the English gets.

So, we'll see what comes of this.  If it materializes, then there may be a lack of blog posts this weekend.

Yay! I'm in favor of you going. But there must be many pictures!
