Day 5, Poznań. Today, recital (Inviolata) in this amazing place (interior shots later), the Church of St. Wojciech Image
Sorry, got that completely wrong. The photo is correct, but the church is not St. Wojciech at all, but the Church of the Blessed Virgin (Kościół Najświętszej Marii Panny W Poznaniu)--annoying not to be able to edit a tweet!

Day 6. 0543 local time. Still quite dark. After a very brief sleep, today it's Poznań to Rzeszow on IC 7300, about 7.5 hours with 26 stops, followed by an evening recital at a UNESCO world heritage site,the wooden church in Blizne Image

Day 7, 0803 local. Today the long journey home begins. My agenda: Rzeszow to Berlin via Krakow. Image
1019 local, rolling out of Krakow, bound for Berlin. Now I can relax for seven hours, after a tight & rushed connection at Krakow Image
In an idle moment, I worked out that today's & tomorrow's journey from Krosno to Richmond (N. Yorks.) is the best part of 1500 miles, like going from New York to the middle of Nebraska, or slightly further than San Diego to Vancouver.
