Connections

     Here I am in the rainy Warsaw!
     I arrived last night, not without adventures, as you might have seen on my FB page...
View of the centre of Warsaw
     My flight from Chisinau to Vienna was 2 hours late and , as I had only 50 minutes until the connection flight from Vienna to Warsaw- I lost it... Actually, it was not such a big surprise for me, as every time I fly from Chisinau I have unpleasant delays, so this time- I checked before my trip weather there's another flight from Vienna to Warsaw later same day and there was only one, which I was very lucky to catch 5 minutes before the boarding. You can't imagine how I ran from the plane to the transfer desk :))) I was aware that if I don't catch that flight I will either stay a night in Vienna, which means not playing the 1st round, or I will have another crazy connection...
     All in all, I am happy that I am here safe and sound :D
     It is my first time in Warsaw, well, it's actually the 2nd one, though the first time I've been only at the railway station and at the airport :D I visited Lodz and Legnica and I liked them both. As about my first impressions from Warsaw- it's much more than I expected- I really, really like it- can't wait to explore it!
    We play against Switzerland today. You can find the pairings here: http://chess-results.com/tnr113757.aspx?lan=11&art=2&rd=1&wi=821 and here is the official site of the event, where you can follow the live games and the daily photo reports: http://etcc2013.com/

Will keep you posted!

xoxo from Warsaw! ;)
