Poland, Day 4 (Buses to the Birthplace of Solidarity)

The fourth day of MBA's Poland tour took the dancers from not far from the Ukrainian border to the north of Poland on the Baltic sea.  Their destination was Gdansk, the country's largest seaport and the birthplace of the Solidarity movement - the first independent labor union in a Soviet-bloc country whose strength led to the fall of communism in Poland at the end of the 1980s.

Lunch time in Warsaw

Traveling by city bus, taxi, and intercity bus, the group went from Swidnik to Lublin, Lublin to Warsaw, and finally to Gdansk.  With various starts and stops and a nice lunch in Warsaw, it took them 12 hours to make the 6 hour trip.

On the bus again...

The dancers will stay in Gdansk for 4 days, so they should have plenty of time to recover from the long journey.
