Fulbrighter had the pleasure of taking Polish language classes at the esteemed University of Nicholaus Copernicus. Copernicus (1473-1543) was the astronomer and mathematician who published his work on what he called the heliocentric solar system.

After arriving in Poland on September 8th and spending a few days in Warsaw it was off to the wonderful city of Torun, approx. a 3-hour bus ride north of Warsaw, for our (Fulbrighters and family) 9-day orientation. Now my fourth trip to Poland, it was in this delightful city in 2003 when I first became attached to Polish culture. A city seemingly untouched by the presence of nearby countries to the east and west, Torun is a must see when visiting Poland.
