The end of an era

On Chmielna Street, opposite Kino Atlantic, was the cafe Pod Kaktusami. It was there, that in 1999 I was approached by a shaman and my interest in shamanism began. Every time I crossed this cafe my thoughts came back to that day and to the consequences of that day (all this to be found in my fifth novel, The Charlatan).

A few months ago, the cafe closed. It stayed closed and empty for some time until a few days ago I saw a new sign saying that the cafe was taken by Magda Gessler…

The end of an era for me… Thankfully, I am able to trace every memory back by my writing. Art is forever.
