Embracing my Polish Roots

While at the University of Warwick (after Liverpool) I met some Polish mathematicians who explained to me how I must change my last name to return to the Polish roots. Of course I can't remember exactly what was supposed to happen, but it was something about changing the second "b" and the "h" to unknown letters, and thus it really would translate to "little apple."

During our first night in Berlin, we came upon this shop. Sadly it wasn't open, but perhaps later we can visit Pigasus Polish Art Gallery.
As you might guess it was the pigs that first caught my eyes. Such a pleasant surprise to see so many pigs that are not on a window display of a butcher.

Hello Kelly!

The word is "jabluszko", where you should replace "l" by "\l" (and which is pronounced as "w" in "Wendy"). "sz" is pronounced as "sch".

Congratulations for your postdoctoral fellowship at KTH! (I just got an information about the winners, this is how I found your blog).

Best regards,
