Warsaw, Poland - Day Three - Going to the Drug Store and Exploring Ground Level of My High Rise

Day 3 Warsaw, Poland. I'm going to take it easy at my apartment. And really venture out tomorrow! This area is north of my building. I was going to the closest drug store called "Rossmann", they are scattered all over town. I needed contact saline/solution. You can't bring big bottles on airplanes so I had to throw away the rest of my saline. I didn't have a lot left.
 
I should have got it Friday night when I came or Saturday because the drug stores were closed Sunday. I have slept in my contacts 2 nights. The ones I was wearing when I came needed to be thrown out anyway. I have like a 6 month supply of disposable contacts with me. I'm glad I brought my contact lens case to the drug store. The Google translate word for saline: "solankowy" she didn't understand.
The church in the pic is literally on the north side of my building. The flags are the Poland and Warsaw flags. Poland's flag is 🇵🇱 white and red and Warsaw's flag is yellow and red striped.
 
For $8.63 American money equivalent at the drug store I got a medium bottle of contact saline solution. About a liter size bottle of Pepsi and 2 liter size bottles of water. Alone in the United States that contact saline/solution would cost that or maybe even $10!
How Warsaw is set up is little stores and restaurants are at the bottom of skyscrapers everywhere. There's even a small grocery convenient store and a library at the bottom ground level they call "0" in my high rise apartment.
 
Day 3 in Warsaw Poland. Exploring the places on the bottom of my highrise. The main drag nearby through downtown to the mall, central train station and the bus station with high rises all along it are along a street called "Jana Pawla II" Street. Today I see a plaque on the bottom of a highrise dedicated to Pope John Paul II and it says "Jana Pawla II" so now I learn the main drag I go on to central area is named after the Polish Pope when I was a kid. I remember he's from Poland.
