Meeting my Polish "sister"

We had booked this trip to Krakow in summer of 2005,
because I really wanted to go back to this beautiful city
which I had visited before in 1983.

It was a mere coincidence, when we found out later that year,
that my Polish "sister" Karolina - the bone marrow recipient from 2003 -
lived only 80 km away from Krakow! So of course we decided to meet and
that meeting made Krakow the most special place ever!

We spent a whole day together, talking, exchanging stories, eating,
drinking, sightseeing, laughing and crying

- but those were tears of joy!

    Yet to get back to Krakow. Great story about meeting your recipient. Have a great trip and thanks for checking in. All is well here in Alaska. Busy and not much travel - domestic only these days.

    I very much enjoyed your Kraków page and was moved by the story of meeting Karolina. I admire your deeply humanitarian attitude. Best of luck!
