            Waiting… and waiting… and waiting for October 17th to come around. It seems like we haven’t played in forever and still have a little less than a week before we head to Gorzow to finally play again. While this break has been nice and allowed some time for relaxing, recovering, and excessive episodes of TV shows online, I think we are all ready to play again.

It’s a beautiful clear and crisp fall day here in Poland and has been this way for about 4 or 5 days now. The leaves are turning colors and the days and especially the nights are starting to get a little chilly. We have today off and will be spending it by resting and recovering from a long week and going to watch a couple of basketball games including one of the professional men’s teams from Gdynia.

            Happy New Year! 2012 is officially in the books and it was yet another great year to look back on. One of the biggest highlights and most notable accomplishments was signing my first professional contract, leading me to where I am today- back in Poland!

Sometimes the smallest things can provide the most excitement as well as comfort and a feeling of normalcy in unfamiliar surroundings. For myself, I had one of these moments a few days ago when I took advantage of a morning off from workouts and went on a little trip to find Starbucks. This successful voyage definitely brought a smile to my face. For a moment, I felt like I was back in Seattle making a trip down the street to Starbucks just as I so frequently did.

            In the midst of a large crowd of a wide spread mixture of nationalities, languages, and unique cultural “swags”, I stood in line at the Newark International Airport waiting to pass through security when it finally hit me… The time had finally come to pack up my bags and begin my next journey. Although still in America, the flurry of non-American cultures was overwhelming and sort of gave me that Wizard of Oz “we’re not in Kansas anymore” type feeling.

Just when I thought I was finally looking like less of an American tourist as I go about my day-to-day activities, an experience last week turned that all around. I was walking through the mall by myself enjoying a mocha when I noticed this old lady sweeping the floors. I felt her eyes fixed on me as we walked almost side by side. I turned to look at her but it didn’t alter her obvious fixation. Maybe my hair was looking a little crazy or something, I’m not really sure. This was a little weird but turned comical seconds later.

            November 11th is an important day and national holiday in America as well as Poland. While Americans are honoring Veterans and those who have served our country, Poland is celebrating its Independence Day; equivalent to our 4th of July without the fireworks and elaborate celebration.

            We are in the midst of ending the first part of season with a strong run. Last Friday’s victory marked the third in a row, adding to a much needed win streak. On Friday we traveled 5 hours on the bus before arriving and playing against PTK Pabianice, also known as the “team in the skirts.” The game was very slow with not much scoring in the first half, maybe the long bus ride beforehand contributed, however the fourth quarter was very strong for us and we come away with a 68-47 win.

            With season in full swing and having played multiple games both at home and on the road, I thought I would share with everyone some of the differences in the games between here and the U.S.

The first official games are in the books! We traveled afar to compete in our first Polish league game. Although parading across European countryside sounds quaint, it was all too similar to the great Midwestern plains of the United States. After driving nearly the length of the entire country, we played KK Row Rybnik and lost a very close game. We jumped out to a great start and led 13-1 until Rybnik went on a run of their own. The rest of the game could be described as a Ping-Pong match; it was back and forth the rest of the way.
