    LOL I recall one phone conversation a friend of mine had with her cousin from Russian. It went something like:

    -"How is the weather there? Here it's 12".
    -"Nice! Here too...just...minus".

    It was usually a little above freezing. Like 33 F. :) Actually, not even that cold. It's only mid-November.

    Usually not, but couple years ago it was very very cold. I remember, because I bought 2 sweaters, hat and gloves that day. :D

    But it's usually the chilling wind not temperature. And bus/uber should be fine.

    Heh, that reminds me of my first festival outside Israel, Berlin Salsa congress in October. I brought only a light fleece and froze all weekend!

    Three weeks to go! Guys they are doing social dancing during the day too, from 1-7 PM. Right now it is only Saturday+Sunday which is too bad as Friday would actually be the perfect tine for afternoon dancing. I sent them a Facebook message, help me convince them by bombarding them with requests for dancing on Friday :)

    Yeah but I imagine many people arrive Friday late afternoon/evening so not sure there would be enough for the afternoon dancing on Friday. Some of us work on Fridays you know :p I'm taking Monday off but don't want to use up two vacation days just for one congress. I'm going to a different congress pretty much every week, so at that rate I wouldn't have much holiday left if I used up vacation days for each one :p

    If you work in Europe, you have practically unlimited vacation days compared to the US! :dancingbanana:

    When I moved to Europe, I was shocked because it appeared like most people were never working! People would take Friday/Monday off to go to festivals every month and could still be able to take longer 1-2 week holidays sometime later during the year! Was totally absurd to me how common it was for people to take so many days off without repercussion. 5-6 weeks vacation AND 10+ public holidays a year... insanity!

    That is more healthy than insanity :). Insanity is USA where there are so few vacation days for the most. Traveling from east coast to the west or vice versa easily eats up a day due to time zones.

    A friend of mine has a discount code if anyone still wants to buy the pass for El Sol.

    I will be at the Amsterdam and then go to Warsaw from there. I haven’t yet decided when to arrive in Warsaw. Last year I took a detour via Budapest (three days). Any suggestion? One alternative I am thinking is hop over to Paris for a couple of days.

    Yess me! I didnt buy my pass yet and could use that :)

    You should check out Krakow if you've never been there. Really worth a stop

    I will send you a PM.

    Please check your private message box. I have sent you discount details on it. Suggest you buy it before 1st (I think the prices go up after that)

    For my five months of work in Luxembourg (it's a temporary position at the European Commission) I'm getting two weeks (10 days) of vacation days plus a week for Christmas and some public holidays. Still, I'd rather not waste my vacation days by taking Friday off when I can just as easily arrive at 11 pm since there's usually no dancing before that anyway. :) However I am taking off Monday since Sundays tend to be my favorite nights at congresses :)

    For Warsaw I suggest starting at Thursday.

    Well if this suggestion had come six weeks ago when I bought my flights, it would have been a little more useful :p Actually our Airbnb was originally booked for Thurs but we changed it for Friday because none of us wanted to take Friday off :p

    in Israel Fridays are always off and people work on Sunday.

    Well clearly Israelis are at a disadvantage when it comes to salsa congresses since if you want to attend all three nights you have to take both Sunday and Monday off :p

    So are salsa congresses in Israel Thursday - Saturday instead of Friday - Sunday?

    That's correct.
