Back in our illustrious Wrocław hotel, home of the frankfurt toting Russian and the beer and sausage party. It's actually peaceful here in the kitchen. Apart from the occasional bleary eyed Russian who staggers in seeking a ciggerette in broken English, I have the place to myself. Ewa has gone to attend a job interview. Tonight we head back to Kraków for almost the last time.
Cabbage, n. A familiar kitchen-garden vegetable about as large and wise as a man's head. The cabbage is so called from Cabagius, a prince who on ascending the throne issued a decree appointing a High Council of Empire consisting of the members of his predecessor's Ministry and the cabbages in the royal garden. When any of his Majesty's measures of state policy miscarried conspicuously it was gravely announced that several members of the High Council had been beheaded, and his murmuring subjects were appeased.
