Okay, we are live and a bit behind schedule because of traffic and CP time I can’t lie Alright so if you are tuning in to this on the playback, please. I guess you can fast-forward about two to three minutes as we be wait for people to join and at the beginning we always do a roll call So if you’re tuning in on the live please tell me where you’re tuning in from and what time is it where you are because I like to know I cannot walk. Let’s not die on the live Okay, so today we are going to tour Warsaw’s old town, so because things are a little behind, we’re not in our starting point so we’re going to do that but um let me just go ahead and read: Greetings from Warsaw, and someone’s in England okay. What’s up, what’s up? Thank you guys so much for tuning in once again sorry for the CP time. PicassoArt from Toronto okay I have definitely seen your comments. Thank you so much for your support on the YouTube channel and on Jasminettv.com. You guys have been great just just amazing for real so about one more minute till we get to our starting point because I’m trying to do things a little bit organized here. So I even have some notes alright so if you know anything about Warsaw’s old town as we do our tour today. Don’t fall, right? As we do our tour today, feel free to share anything that you know. So we’re going to take a legit tour and have some stopping points where we can chat and you can ask questions alright but for right now I’m going to stop talking and let you get these views of Old Town Okay, I saw Abu Dhabi as well. That’s pretty cool. We are almost here guys. It is very very nice weather couldn’t ask for better alright cool, so we’re here now On Plac Zamkowy please let me know if I’m saying anything wrong I will try my best but for right now we’re going to have our first little our first little “the more you know”. Our little drop of knowledge alright so I’m just going to give you views and drop some knowledge. So everyone, this is old town. Warsaw’s top tourist area and a look into the once upon a time golden days of Warsaw. This area was entirely rebuilt after the Warsaw Uprising of 1944. The Old Town is also symbolic of Warsaw’s rise from the ruins of world war ii and of Warszawian’s pride in their city. Later in the tour we’ll see photos of the devastation as a result of the war to show you how far Warsaw has come, so be sure to stay tuned in and we are actually at our first stop, okay. So this is our first stop on the tour Here we are under king Sigismund’s column. This column was constructed in the middle of the 17th century to commemorate the Polish king Sigismund III Vasa who was known for having moved the capital from Krakow to Warsaw. So as you can see, the column holds a bronze sculpture of the king with his armor that dominates the skyline of Old Town and here we also have the Royal Castle. Now similarly with the royal castle which you can already see, this was severely damaged during the war and reconstructed after it ended and local legend has it like if you can see his saber or his

sword, however you want to call it but local legend has it that whenever Warsaw is in trouble that the king will rattle his sword. Oh you can’t see it because it’s on me. So this is Sigismund’s column. Now, let’s see the Royal Castle Yeah this this is definitely a good day to do this I tend to turn things into like a history report, but later on we’ll definitely have time to chat and all of that but for anyone tuning in and very interested in Old Town I wanted to give you– I wanted to give you something, you know. So this is the Royal Castle, formally the royal residence between the 16th and 18th centuries the castle currently houses a museum and is open to the public Can we walk in? Okay, this was not open yesterday. So the castle currently houses a museum and is open to the public Restored and furnished with the repossessed furniture and works art, it transports visitors to the time of the last king of Poland. It was reconstructed from piles of rubble at an incredible cost. Oh, wow It was reconstructed between 1971 and 1984 So this is the Royal Castle. Oh my gosh, yeah I’ve actually never, I’ve never been– Well no, we went to Wawel Castle in Krakow I’m trying to get in on those, on all the monuments up there. It’s pretty cool Alright, hello to everyone, all the new people who have tuned in. And we are going to continue our tour of Old Town, alright so we’ve seen two places already and let’s head on to the third area which is Ulica Piwna, which means “Beer Street” okay so we’re going to walk to Beer Street. I’m glad you’re enjoying the tour R. Burrows So let me get you these views And one of these streets has like a lot of ice cream. I don’t remember the street name but we will definitely pass it Oh no no no no, not at this time I don’t participate in libations until like after 5:00 Ul. Piwna, Beer Street. “Piwo” is beer and I guess “Piwna” is just some kind of conjugation because Polish. One thing I love man, I love nice doors. You can’t even really see it but it’s great We are coming up on actually two important sites, and before we continue I need to stop and say that I got a lot of this information from Inyourpocket.com and culturetrip.com so I can’t take credit for everything. This would be considered plagiarism in college Our first– but I did reword, I reworded some things

Our first one here is “Karmnik”. This is definitely a popular shot bar And it’s actually named after an eccentric old woman who I guess like when old town was in ruins, she actually settled into the rubble to take care of the pigeons. I’m not really sure what “karmnik” means but it was named after her I haven’t eaten there but it’s now on my list. Oh yeah it’s crazy, gorgeous. Okay so this is Saint Martin’s Church and I’m just going to back up so you can get like the full effect here Let’s see if I can go way back so you can get it Oh, feeder. Well now we know, so she fed the pigeons. Alright so this church was completely flattened during the war and actually we’re going to see some pictures, some black-and-white photos so for anyone who’s not aware of just like how devastated Warsaw was, we’ll get to see some black and white photos in a bit And I saw someone mention Prague which is on my list of places to go whenever I get my residency card and if you check out the blog posts on Jasminettv.com, then you’ll know my residency situation We’re coming up to an intersection here and we are going to take a left We’re on Zapiecek Street and Ulica Piekarska I’m trying okay, so I’m showing you the names so I won’t butcher them. So now we are– This area was home, I hope the wind isn’t so ba. I’m trying to get out of it, but this area was home to a small square actually used for executions. They executed witches, criminals, they were burned at the stake, beheaded, and more So that happened somewhere over here, I just thought that was interesting information for our people who love like ghost tours and things like that. I thought that was pretty interesting, but I actually don’t want to know exactly where it was. So that’s this street and we are gonna go to Zapiecek Street and look at those photos that I just mentioned. And so I saw PicassoArt, you mentioned that your grandmother was 11 and I went to one of the museums and the name is slipping me right now but I thought it was pretty cool how you can listen to people’s people’s accounts of how it was when the war started and and when the war ended. I can’t even imagine. I can’t even imagine So we just went down Piwna. Now we’re on Zapiecek which is like a very, very popular restaurant. There are many, many locations all over Warsaw I recommend I’m actually just going to pause on some of these photos so that if you’re watching, you can maybe, if you’re doing the playback, you can pause it and read if you’d like. So I’ll wait, I’ll hover And Old Town is also a UNESCO world heritage site as well

We might have to come back to get the others. We just headed into a walking tour. That’s a little screw in the plans but we’ll come back and get the other two So let’s head into the main square. So we’re now entering or we’re now in old town square and this dates back to the 13th century where it used to be the center of public life, hosting political speeches and more executions apparently Today, the Market Square offers a wide range of good restaurants– yes we will see the Warsaw mermaid, sorry– today the Market Square offers a wide range of good restaurants, cocktail bars, street art, and souvenirs. Somewhere in this area, there is the Literature Museum and Historical Museum of Warsaw and so we are going to walk to one of the most loved, best-loved or most loved monuments of Warsaw. I would really like for that walking tour to move so I can get you the other pictures, but okay. If anything I’ll post them on Instagram if we don’t get them. So let’s just mosey on over to this monument here Ah hello, Michael. We are in Old Town looking at the mermaid So there’s a man and I don’t know what he’s playing? Does anyone know this instrument? But if you’ll see he has the mermaid on the side and this is the monument here There’s a photo happening Trying not to photobomb This might be a good– here we are. This is perfect I believe the name of this monument is “Syrenka”. Am I saying that right? Oh a barrel-organ, that’s the name of the instrument over there. Okay, this was cast in 1855 and of course you’ll see this image all over Warsaw. We just saw it on the man’s barrel organ is that what you called it? And yeah it’s all over Warsaw on buses, on taxis We’re just gonna take a little stroll around the square maybe so you can get a good view of the buildings. Actually, this is where, over here where Michael and I were If you read the Travel Noire article, I took my picture over here. That’s crazy I love it. Okay so yeah we’re just going to do a complete square of the square and I see that some people are saying that

they’re planning on coming to Warsaw. Who all has been to Warsaw or actually has plans on coming? I’d love to see that Oh, there’s a car. We are actually in the street. You know I don’t know? I don’t know why there are so many police? That’s a good question I mind my business So this is duck and apple and cranberry It says it in English, I was actually reading the Polish part Oh my gosh, that tour group is still over there. That’s okay okay whoo natural ice cream And actually, this is one of my favorites. I actually have no idea why but it’s pretty cool. I’ve actually never been in this in this place, but I like that all right oh the group is gone all right so let’s do the other two sides of the of the black and white photos. I’m going to move kind of fast before someone else comes So we did the other two so here’s this one here so remember on the playback you can pause and read if you’d like here There’s even a little thing here I feel complete. That is a beautiful horse, oh my God Let’s continue on to our– one of our final stops and once we’ll see this, we’ll just mosey on back to where we started If we have enough time we will walk to the presidential palace I am legit trying not to get hit. I know that car is “samochod”. Nonperson22 are you asking “Are you a Polish language?” okay actually we’re coming up to the street that has all the ice cream and I love it. Ah yes I guess I am a student Jestem studentka. Is that right? I have no idea. Look at the little puppets interesting let’s get to the ice cream Oh jestem studenką. Okay, got it all right if I remember correctly this street was the old school Fish

Market Street. I could be wrong, someone can correct me. But really, right now it’s ice cream Street. Oh my gosh. I’ve actually never had these a chimney cake I’m gonna have to try that okay so whenever you see “Lody”, it is ice cream and if you see “gofry”, it is waffles and the place that had all the people has ice cream and waffles and I might have to visit them a little later Is that GoPro? That I’m using? This is an old iPhone 7 that I pray doesn’t give out on me. I wish I had GoPro money So we are currently at the Barbican Here we go. Here’s the English and Polish version. I’d love to have a GoPro don’t get me wrong but right now I work with what I got okay. So really quickly let me just tell everyone the Barbican is a set of defensive walls which once protected the city. It dates back from 1548 and today it serves as a bridge between the old and new town. This is the Barbican This is pretty cool. There was a lady here last night playing a guitar in this little cove. I guess this is New Town? So we’re going to just walk back For people who are interested in coming to Poland, whenever you are in a bar and when you want to say cheers, you say “Na zdrowie”. Right? That is an important word to know. all right so let’s enter here and we’re just going to circle back around the Barbican I’m doing like– take a picture of you? Yes, I will be nice and take it. We will take a picture of you. Okay, can you hold this? You can say hello okay so let’s go back here. I love the colors, forest green, olive green, whatever

green is one of my favorite colors so this might be my favorite building although I don’t know what the pictures mean. It might be my new job. I should have charged him. That will be 10 złoty please. He’s legit carving the wood right now. That’s a skill Let’s see if I can maneuver alright, so we’re back on ice cream Street. That’s really not the name of the street, sorry guys But the street name: Nowomiejsca. Oh my gosh, that looks like great ice cream. Okay good, I’m glad you’re enjoying it. We’re going to head back to kind of where we started but we’re just going to take a different route back Yes, everywhere Bthe way we’re meeting Michael. Michael, where are you? because I’m back in the I’m right back in the main square but you can meet me by the statute. The mermaid? I just blocked so many people’s photos Let’s play “Where’s Michael?” No Michael is my first friend that I ever made in Warsaw and if you watch the people of color in Poland videos– I see him, I see him. We’re easy to find in Poland We got a better view of this. Alright say “Hey.”, Michael Yes, so warm today. It is very warm today And we’re doing a dance– Michael tell us about your dance class, that’s what we’re doing after this. I’m teaching a Afrofusion workshop- oh my God- ok so first of all I sound super flemmy because– Are you sick? No, the Sun came out so the pollen is everywhere yeah so now the rain isn’t keeping it down so I’m super congested in my throat and I need to start taking claritin again but besides the point. I’m teaching Afrofusion later it’s like a style that’s basically from West African pop culture but not just West African, different cultures It’s two hours. One or two, we’ll see how it goes I’m going to get the side of the building really quickly because that’s beautiful yeah Wait, what time is it? Do we have time for lunch? You know, I don’t know what we’re going to have for lunch? I’m supposed to be on a diet and supposed to be getting salads wherever I go but let’s be real Okay we kind of went off tour, sorry guys but we were going to see the rest of Piwna Street which is that way, but it’s okay. We’ll go down this street There’s something going on down there. I had to walk around. So let’s go back this way then, there’s something happening

My students were telling me that there’s a big Vietnamese community in Warsaw And my students were like “They’re some of the richest people in Warsaw.” Yeah, so this was the other end of Piwna street. We have about 5 minutes, we’ll walk it. Oh my gosh. You guys can’t see it and I don’t know how if I can zoom in on this but it says karaoke and I love karaoke. How long have you been looking for a karaoke spot? But I’ve tried like two but they weren’t legit. They were like little holes in the walls and it’s like– I don’t know? There was one that I found that I liked but I did a dry run last night so I wouldn’t get lost today and last night there were people in the square, not the main square but where we first started, Plac Zamkowy. There were people singing and playing guitar for money. Just people out there and that’s something I want to try Like playing something? No, I’m not playing nothing I just want to sing something Oh on the street? On the street because I feel like that would be a way– You shouldn’t be afraid to do anything after that because even with these things, I get nervous and it’s not like “Oh can y’all give me money?” No, I just want to– I just want to do it. Like even when I was in Korea, I wanted to do it. When I visited my friend in New York over the– when I was back in the States I was like, Should I bust out into song? Oh Vanirose, we are not ready right now. Ready for what? He said sing something right now. I need like some– You need lemon water, you need runs okay What gets me, you can’t see, but a lot of the workers here wear these overalls and they look like Mario and Luigi. They look like the Mario Bros, but it’s so cute like and they’re always different colors and I don’t know but that’s like the construction worker’s — get-up Yeah, Bob the Builder. Can we fix it? Yes, we can! But we saw a lot of stuff. We saw where they– apparently a lot of executions went down over here A lot of Bar and Bistros now though. All right Michael let’s practice our Polish oh but it’s English too so we really can’t practice all right here would you cover up the English and I’ll read it Anyone, just choose one but not too difficult no I’m gonna translate it I’m gonna try pistachio why did we come here potatoes something with potato that’s pork I don’t eat pork so I never learned it okay gotcha That was a fail We’re just gonna end it back at Plac Zamkowy. Does anyone have questions for me or Michael? This is I guess the last ten minutes of this live or the last little walk Why would you starve in Poland? Someone said they’re gonna starve in Poland. Oh because we don’t eat pork but I’m guessing that’s why but, they have options

I love duck since I moved here oh my god oh Yeah, you were sleeping on it at first. I was. You were the one that put me on actually Lubimy kaczki. We love duck. So why did I come to Warsaw? I originally got a job in Krakow and Nathan who was the first interview for the people of color in poland’s series, I contacted him through facebook and he was just like I think you’ll have an easier time in Warsaw. So really I just wanted to live in Europe and for me because like the low cost of living and the fact that I also work online so I USD in Poland so it works for me because some people are like low cost of living, low salary but not true if you can work remotely as an English teacher also I thought the location was pretty great to just travel around and then I just I said before in one of the interviews like the few YouTube videos that I saw like Luke life charms and Zandii like they just seemed very happy here let me see what they talking about so I chose– I just chose Warsaw and I figured if I didn’t like it, I would leave but I’m still here so it’s working like so I like it enough for sure. Yeah he is, he’s always happy for sure somebody said Luke is always happy I’ve had the opportunity I’ve chatted with him a bit on Instagram so hopefully we could do some type of collab. Someone said “Why does Michael have a better hairstyle than me?” Stop it. It’s a struggle out here. I put on Instagram, I was like which one should be my first wig, and somebody messaged me and said neither one all naturale which honestly I would love to wear my my natural hair but the winter time in Poland I was not prepared and my hair is actually struggling right now. I actually almost cried one day man like no lie I took a picture of all the hair that just came out and I sent it to my friend and she text me back like what is happening? Are you okay? and even got to one point- there’s a child on a bike– it even got to one point where I there was it just wouldn’t cooperate and I’m responsible for my own hair and I just cu.t I cut like four inches so yeah it’s a lot. So to protect my hair, I have purchased a wig and it is on its way. El Naturale only works works when you’re somewhere that you can take care of your hair well enough Yeah it is so I just I just wasn’t prepared for the cold and I thought that I could just have my hair all out and about and I wasn’t hydrating it properly so yeah man I learned my lesson. I have actually learned quite a lot about how dry it is here for my scalp and stuff and like even just you know the regular routine that I used to use with the co washing and stuff does not work here. I have to figure it all out all over again It’s not a game so come with a plan. Come with plan A, B, and C So we are back here at the main part Hopefully, for anybody watching this on the playback hopefully this was a bit organized. I’m trying to do a little bit better with the live streams okay so yeah there you see the Royal Castle. That was the second thing. We started at Sigismund III Vasa’s column and over in this area is where I saw the people– I saw the people singing

We did a solid 45 minutes. We’re going to get lunch. You can be sure to follow me on instagram at JasmineT_TV, so you know we might post where we go to lunch, right. I might do an instagram story there. If it’s good, but I don’t think we’ve ever been truly disappointed, have we? And then yeah so I will see you guys either next week and/or on Instagram Thank you guys so much for tuning in, bye bye!
