DAY 1: Arrival in Krakow

After some minor flight chaos in Munich, we made it to Krakow. We settled into our beautiful little room, complete with an uncomfortably large mirror and Cold War-era radio. The evening consisted of many reunions with the leaders of ternYpe – International Roma Youth Network who first inspired Dafina to start Romanipe: Karolina Mirga, Jonathan Mack, and others. After plunging into a conversation about antigypsyism with German scholar Markus End over a potato-filled dinner, we both crashed. Jet lag and anticipation can be a dangerous combination!
