Img.370 from Malbork (#A3)

Img.370 (#A3): I (i.e. Dr. Eng. Jan Pająk) in a blue jumpsuit, and my brother, Czeslaw Pająk, M.Sc. in a brown shirt. In the background (beyond the Nogat River) you can see the post-Teutonic castle in Malbork, jokingly called by my brother "the biggest pile of bricks in Europe." In turn, this entire "pile of bricks" survived the sinking into the sandy and moist ground softened by the waters of the Nogat river only because of the extraordinary durability and resistance to rotting described above in item #A3 (while explained more comprehensively in item #C4.8. of the web page named Wszewilki tomorrow and additionally confirmed by the evidence from item #D2.1. of another web page named Tapanui) piles made of extremely durable "moon wood" - on which the foundations of this castle are based. (On similarly sturdy piles made of "moon wood" driven into the salt sea marsh also stands the entire Italian city of Venice). Photo from May 1995.
