Lately I've been coming to Poland only to attend funerals. There is no joy in visits like this. Already a few years ago I've stopped planning my trips, I fly over when I am needed.
I wish I could come to Poland just for holidays. I wish I could come with whole family and drive around my beautiful country showing them the many wonderful places that they still haven't seen. I hope that next time my wishes will come true and we will come to Poland for fun. But until then ...
Throughout this stay we visited many graves on quite a few cemeteries - in Warsaw, Bydgoszcz and Belsk. This year the weather around All Saints' Day was cold and wet, but that was no excuse and we still visited the historical Powązki cemetery in Warsaw three times.

There is a tradition to decorate graves with flowers and candles. One can buy either potted or cut flowers, there are also wreaths with fresh or artificial flowers.
