I have just completed my first trip to Lodz. It was an unusual trip for a number of reasons. A nation was in mourning after the death of their president and his wife. An ash cloud from Iceland caused my return flight to be cancelled. A journey home by coach made me realise how fast air travel really is. How the Dunkirk spirit is still alive and well when you get ‘Brits’ together and the chips are down. And lastly it should be compulsory to provide rubber rings to sit on for long coach journeys.
Lodz is a city of contrasts. I took this picture outside of the cathedral as 2 young men placed flowers on a makeshift memorial before praying. Having seen them arrive they looked like they would not have been out of place mugging old ladies. I just could not imagine the same scene in the UK.
