Miranda

[ Aug.2016 ] After our fabulous dinner, we took a taxi and move to the old town in Warsaw. Our destination was Old Town Market Place.

From the big wheel

Miranda

Miranda

[ July 2016 ] We went to a restaurant called “3 Pavaru Restorans” which was recommended in a Japanese website. I was surprised to see that it had the atmosphere with a grand manner and the staff were rather pretentious. It seemed that they thought that this attitude was cool. When we sat at a …
