We heard from our man in Poznań, P, this morning that the rector is out for the week. He'll be back on Monday and already has an appointment with our guy, who has forwarded our letter and his on to the rector and the deans. We also learned that P not only knows the rector as a classmate but was a former business partner with him too. Apparently they go way back. P says he's a very nice man, so we'll see what happens on Monday.
Until then though, I am still working on my US applications and Piotr will be heading to Warsaw on Wednesday morning for a couple days of intense business meetings. The cats and I will hold down the fort and keep each other company.
