Eric was doing his best to be ‘crazy’ but I noticed that he locked the car and checked the doors in the same careful way that my dad used to lock his Ford Anglia before leaving it unattended and I was beginning to suspect that being crazy wasn’t something that actually came all that naturally to him. He had wild hair arranged in extravagant dreadlocks and an outward bohemian appearance but behind the external image he was really an educated scholar with an impressive knowledge of Krakow, word perfect English and an incisive philosophical interpretation of his subject.
Thank you for your review of Eric’s ‘crazy’ tour of Nowa Huta. Shame I didn’t read it before visiting Krakow. I saw a flyer for this tour, or one very much like it, but was put off by its ‘crazy’ness, and took a tram instead. I had a fascinating walk nevertheless. T.
That’s a shame because it was a really good tour with an excellent guide.
