Ed was working at “the other” F-16 base recently. We stayed in Lodz at the Andel’s hotel – part of the enormous Manufaktura shopping and cultural center. It was the first time we’ve stayed at the Andel’s, a beautiful red brick structure that has won numerous architectural awards. Very comfortable rooms with a great spa on the top floor, complete with infinity pool. Despite the luxury, they have kept the industrial, textile mill feeling to go with the historic location.

While the guys were at work, Janet and I visited the White Factory – the sight of another textile mill. It’s now a museum with reminders of the past and an amazing collection of textile art. My friend, Cynthia, is among other things, quite an artist with fabric. I kept wishing she was there with us to take it in. I know she would have loved it.
