I have a friend named Michal staying here at the hostel with me. Every few days he gets on his bicycle with laden homemade panniers (saddle bags) and sets out for Germany. He's usually returned by the end of the day. I haven't seen him in a while so maybe he's finally made his escape. I need to hang around until the middle of next week for insurance reasons, then I should be out of here as well since my hatch seals arrived today.
