Living in a Polish Water Tower
I received an unexpected postcard from the petite Polish town of Dąbrówno last week, sent by my friend Tim who was backpacking through Europe. He mentioned that he was shacking up in a converted water tower, and my ears perked up. Although not necessarily an ode to modernism, this abandoned water tower transformation seemed like a notable tribute to summer homeyness -- and I wanted to share what he shared with me.
