3 (un)usual moments of the city of krakow


3 meditations between past and feature, people and architecture, work and play

in 3 chapters:


a. playing (with) the past: a boy plays with a ball against the wall of the old synagogue while is hearing comments of some german tourists [stara synagoga]


b. working (with) the present: workers repairs a street between the old city and the old jewish city with the help of a huge, like a dinosaur, machine, while a guy transports bottles of water to a store and people passes through [ul. starowiślna]
