I am leaning toward living and teaching in Krakow. I have another interview tomorrow morning. It seems like a very good school. Good feedback from a former teacher that worked there for a few years. And very friendly director.
Yeah . . . things could come together . . . fingers crossed
Just chillin in the living room of the hostel. They have wireless so I am using my laptop. Feels great. YEAH. Internet.
Went to British Library yesterday. Amazing. Love the old books. Also picked up an old copy of Milton's Paradise Lost (printed in 1801). Inside the old book there are newspaper clippings from some literary critic about the greatness of Milton.

Everything is very expensive in London. Especially compared to Poland. So can't go nuts with books. Plus can't find a good used bookshop for good poetry like in Chapel Hill or St. Marks in New York.
Tonight we might go to an indie club. Tomorrow we are going to the club Ministry of Sound. Next Tuesday we might see And You Will Know Us by the trail of Dead. Or something like that. I think they are like Sonic Youth or something.
It feels great to be an English speaking country again. Eating Prawn Cocktail crisps.
