Photographer's Note

Last week I visited my friends in Plonsk. Some years ago they bought ruined 200 years old mansion, renovated it beautifully and now they live like in a museum. They have a big garden with many flowers, trees, two ponds, many benches, bridges, gazebo... I have no idea that someone of my friends can live like this. In the ponds, there are even beavers! My friends are not happy about it, the beavers make damages.
Płońsk [pwɔɲsk] (Yiddish: פּלאָנסק [Plonsk]‎) is a town in north-central Poland with 22,500 inhabitants (2010). It is situated in the Masovian Voivodeship (since 1999) at the river Płonka. Płońsk gained city rights from the prince Siemowit IV of Masovia between 1399 and 1412. In the early twentieth century, the population of 10,000 was equally divided between Poles and Jews. The Jews lived mostly within the city, whilst the Poles were more scattered and tended to live in the countryside.

Maybe Ike finds it interesting that David Ben-Gurion was born in Płońsk.
David Ben-Gurion was the primary national founder of the State of Israel and the first Prime Minister of Israel.

This is the first picture from Płońsk on TE.
