I have uploaded the fixed version. The duration remains the same.
As for Mackilimackinac, I had do at least two tries almost every time the name came up. The pronunciation just wouldn't stick in my memory.

Re: [solo] Za chlebem by Henryk Sienkiewicz - kiki

I remember noticing it but, seeing as the scan says the same, I shrugged it off. Somehow it never occurred to me that it was probably meant to be "krąg"... I cross-checked it with a paper edition at home and decided to fix it. Here it is https://librivox.org/uploads/kikisaulite/zachlebem_01_sienkiew...

Re: [solo] Za chlebem by Henryk Sienkiewicz - kiki

Section 2 is in.

Two months ago I visited a Museum of Emigration and the atrocious conditions for the 4th class passengers and the unscrupulous agent mentioned in the story mirror what I learned from the exhibition.

Re: [solo] Za chlebem by Henryk Sienkiewicz - kiki

Section 1 has been uploaded. After some consideration, I'll split each chapter into 2 parts, so all the MW sections will be used.

Re: [solo] Za chlebem by Henryk Sienkiewicz - kiki

Welcome on board :) I've PMed a Polish user asking whether she'd like to PL this.

I'm hoping to start recording over the weekend. There are 3 chapters altogether, but they are on the longer side so I decided to request 6 sections in case I feel lazy :mrgreen:

Re: [solo] Za chlebem by Henryk Sienkiewicz

It's been some time since I last recorded a solo in Polish. This one is a story about two people, father and daughter, conned into a transatlatic travel to America.
