Ada and I flew over to her home city , Szczecin , just in time for the tall ships event . The town was crowded with tourists , but by this morning the ships have quietly pulled out . A band played .
But the tugs nudging the ships out into mid-river were not quiet . They let out giant farts that were heard miles away .
Now the riverfront is back to normal . The two river tour boats , Ying and Yang ( not their real names ) have retaken their place . The beer booths are dismantled and the vendors have taken away their goods . The crowds have dissipated and drifted back to wherever they go .
