The name of the kid I mentioned yesterday is Genderson.  If he is not "adopted" yet, you can "adopt" him or any other child of the foundation by going to the page:

I wrote "adopt" in parenthesis because it is not a real adoption.  It is so called "adoption at a distance" which means that you can support the child by donating $34 a month or $408 a year to the foundation. The funds are used for providing the needy children with a one good meal a day, as well as for their  education and health care, if necessary. 

The English version of the foundation needs a lot of improvements but I am currently working on it and it will be updated hopefully soon.  The problem is that I don't have a direct access to the website and all the updates need to be sent to a person in Poland who is in charge of the website.

On Christmas Day I went for a walk around town and I came across a cemetery. It was an interesting experience for two reason. First of all the cemetery looks like I have never seen anywhere before. Some bodies are buried in the ground the way I am used to seeing, but most of them are buried over the ground in a special concrete receptacles built on the ground one over the other. They look in fact like miniature buildings and the whole cemetery reminds me of a miniature city. The other interesting thing that I observed that day was that some families came to the cemetery to share their dinner with the members of the family who passed away. So they were eating and drinking in front of the graves, celebrating Christmas Day together...

Unfortunately I did not have my camera with me that day, and I could not record that. For that reason the next day I went to the cemetery once again, but there were no “parties” there any more. Following are a few photographs that I took that day (yesterday).
