Polish Family # 19 - portrait
Danuta 65, Władysław 65
Nowa Huta, Kraków, Poland low income, higher education
Both we are pensioners now. Danuta used to work as an accountant in Kraków and Władysław was an engineer in a building company.
We eat together everyday it is our routine. Sometimes our son comes after work here for some food. When we were working we were coming home different times so we couldn’t eat together. Probably the most important thing for a good meal is to give satisfaction to the people you cook for. On Sundays when we have our children around is a big celebration we spend more time on the table. We have a plot and in the summer we go there very often and we have BBQ’s. In the plot we cultivate flowers, beans, onions, tomatoes, cucumbers etc. we spend all day there, it’s beautiful. In the old days the factories owned those plots and giving them for free to the workers. Now we have to pay a small rent but it is worth it.
