... steward checks our tickets and informs us that there is supposed to be someone else in our cabin but as they haven't showed up it'll be just us, so we can go ahead and lock our door.

The stench would be overwhelming and overpowering for the friends and family members who could be watching from a distant. Ashes would then be scattered anywhere on the ground and in the few lakes that still exist. No care, no respect, no comfort in death.

... and more. We hiked up to the Royal Palace, which existed in Krakow, because it was a royal town in the commonwealth of Poland and Lithuania. Next stop was the Kazimierz Jewish section, which used to be a suburb of the town. This is where the Annual Jewish Cultural Festival takes place which we missed by one day!
