Wanderlust: Poland Heritage Tour, Part IV

Ukrainians love to party. On Saturday, we went to a huge outdoor gathering of Lemko Ukrainians in the Polish foothills of the Carpathian mountains, after a short detour into Slovakia (it's a very culturally complicated area of the world...)

While we didn't stay for the really big festivities late in the night, we did enjoy the rolling hills and cultural camaraderie, before heading back on our merry way to Krakow.
