The “Going Swimming” is about my family going swimming to the lake in the summer, with all the village kids going in the car with us (usually about 7 ppl). The car was Fiat 126p, instantly recognizable to anyone from Poland, the size of a motorbike and nicknamed “maluch” which means ‘small’ or ‘tiny’. You would often see them with bits in a different colour, as no one really bothered with having them repainted after replacing parts. Or maybe just the paint was impossible to get, like the string for a sheaf-binder, and toilet paper, and so many other things. The inflatable dinghy would travel on the roof, tied with a string, wonderful clouds of dust and fumes, and half of the village dogs, would follow us in the afternoon sun. The only inaccuracy is that no one ever got to sit on the roof, even though we all wanted to.
