In the footsteps of John Steinbeck

No, I'm not heading to Monterey, but I am really starting to wind myself up for my trip to Poland. Steinbeck actually went on a pretty extensive Polish tour, hitting Krakow and Wroclaw (where I'm going) as well as Warsaw and Lodz. He was there when Kennedy was shot and, as frankly probably a bigger figure than the American ambassador, was deluged with phone calls and condolences and so forth.
