Old and New

I am having breakfast in the dining room of the Hotel Francuski in Krakow Poland. I note that there is a juxtaposition between old, sometimes what looks under repair, and sparking new.


This hotel has the old charm in abundance by this picture of the wall in the dining room, while unremarkable, might help to get the visual feeling across. Linen tablecloth, herringbone wood floor (complete with the squeaky boards), and rich wood Waynescoating are topped by finely sanded unfinished concrete and plaster.
