I spent most of the day inside a conference room at a magnificant hotel in 
Warsaw?s Old Town, a former  palace, where the Polish Patent Office had 
arranged a conference as part of its celebrations of the 100th anniversary 
of the office. In general, there are many events of all types going on in 
Poland this year, as it marks the centennary of its independence following 
World War I, following 123 years during which Poland did not exist, having 
been divided between Russia, Austria-Hungary and Germany. Four images follow.

The conference room is being readied:

One of the panels during the conference; the guy with the headphones is a 
professor from San Diego who is listening to simultaneous translation (the 
conference was held in Polish):

After the conference, we were offered a drink and a light early dinner in 
the basement:

On the way back to my hotel, a walk of about 1.5 km, I passed the Tomb of 
the Unknown Soldier and happened upon the hourly changing of the guard. Note 
the faces of the two soldiers who have just been relieved?they are clearly 
pleased about not having to stand still for another hour:
