Summer is the season of travel, and as soon as I get to California I'm off to eastern Europe for a week, thanks to this engineering conference in Warsaw where my father is presenting a paper. German study in on hold for now; I picked up some Polish and Czech language tapes but haven't gotten very far with them. I would type some Polish for you, but I don't know how to code the weird diacritical marks. They have some very interesting ideas about orthography, these Poles. Any sound you please can be represented by a consonant cluster containing a z.
