Last night we Sampled traditional Polish street food, Zapiekanka in krakow's new square. It was a kind of long, open grilled sandwich, topped with whatever one liked. You could choose from all kinds of toppings, and john told me each place in the square had it's own slightly different way of making it. The thing was, he explained, the delicacy is dying out, losing its place to increasingly ubiquitous American fast food. That struck me as a great, great shame; you hear the same sad story all over the place. As much of a fan as I am of fostering a global community, at the same time I firmly believe each culture must hold on to what makes it unique. This is a fascinating little city, it's narrow winding streets and medieval squares unlike anywhere I've been before. To see that character lost or enveloped, by any small degree, to the growing world norm, would be a great shame.
