An angel named Angelika

This morning, in the freezing rain and as the buss approached, 
I realised that I forgot my buss ticket in my other denim’s pocket! 

An angel named Angelika (what else?!) blessed me with her spare ticket! 

Angelika is from Krakaw. This 1300 year old Polish city is close to the German extermination camp of Auschwitz. Poles and Jews were classified as subhumans by the WWII occupiers and were targeted for eventual extermination. The Jewish population of the city was moved into a walled zone known as the Kraków Ghetto, from which they were sent to German extermination camps.

. . . and its not only Helle Thorning-Schmidt,  

who can take a selfie, 
Emmie Smit can do so as well!
