I am wondering how did he find out that this is the 111th anniversary of my beloved Granddad's b'day. Thank you Leonard!

Re: Leonard Cohen Event - Krakow

LCmusicfan: Tony Palmer's "Bird on a Wire" is just marvellous - full of vivid scenes - you can really feel the atmosphere of those '72 concerts. Much, much better than bootlegs found on the net. At last this film is complete and it required a lot of work. I have to add that beside being a legendary ...

Re: Thursday morning

It's very easy Laura - cohenite is wearing blue raincoat (usually not-so-famous), under one arm he has monkey, under the other one - plywood violin. You can't miss him.

Re: Thursday morning

On Thursday at Hotel Karmel we will have the registration desk open from 6-8 pm. I am pretty sure this will be the place where everyone may meet or leave some information for other Cohenites. Almost all of the hotels are within walking distance from Hotel Karmel. There are plenty of pubs and cafes i...

Re: Hotels for Krakow 2010?

Dear Carole,
if you're staying at hotel Eden then the distance to the registration would be no more than 200 metres. You just cross Jakuba Street and then turn left on Kupa Street. And voila - you're right at Hotel Karmel.
