Q: Cracow is a city of graphic design or poetry?

A: Add a dozen of pigeons, a shovel of smog, half a liter of vodka, a thumb of an Erasmus student, a teaspoon of pathos, mung mushrooms, a ticket inspector and an old hag into techno broth, stir everything with a machete, put it on Airbnb and pray that it won’t get cold before the renovation of Karmelicka street comes to an end. For dessert, we can get a tattoo and take an Uber to MOCAK (Museum of Contemporary Art in Krakow).
