Finally I got visa to Russia. I was in a Visa Center in Warsaw twice and eventually they told me that they won’t give me it, because I’m from Silesia and it’s closer to the other Visa Center, which is in Krakow. So, I went to Krakow. 2 suitcases in hands and a backpack, altogether about 35 kg. So much, because I was going to Krakow directly from Warsaw. But, in Warsaw I had to pick up a suitcase from China (I had stuff for 3,5 months inside). That suitcase didn’t come with me back to Poland, but remained in Guangzhou. Why? While our stay at World Team Championship, we had some ‘sightseeing activity’. After this trip, every participant got a souvenir – an external phone battery. The Government of China apparently didn’t like the fact, somebody is trying to export that ‘thing’ out of China, so they kept my luggage at the airport. By the way, I came to Poland on 22nd December. I came to Warsaw back for my luggage on 7th January. Of course there was no battery inside. Instead of it, there was a paper with some sentences that the battery was requisitioned and complaints might be applied up to 7 days after my departure (up to 28th December). The way from Warsaw to Krakow was also ‘nice’, because the car in a train was nearly full and there was no compartments. The bigger suitcase filled whole the aisle width. But at last, when with a miracle I got to ‘my’ seat, an annoying hag, who was sitting on that seat told me to find another seat, because at ‘her’ place there was also somebody else, who didn’t give her ‘her’ place, too. Eventually, after 10-15 minutes after the train set off, I managed to find an empty seat. At least I’ve learned, next time I should be more bothersome and go to the conductor. Anyway, I managed to get somehow to Visa Center to Krakow and give them all documents they wanted (I think it was totally 7 sheets of paper). After payment (258,06 PLN) I could go back home. I was in Krakow again for documents’ receipt today. The way (there and back) took me 12 hours, but the visit in a Visa Center took me about 1 minute. Giving them confirmation, signature and finally getting my passport with pasted visa for 4 days (12-15 February). All just for being able to go to the Championships. I’d like to take there at least second place, for being able to represent Europe at the Ing Cup.
