... the main square and watched the snow fall as we were being fed and watered. The snow has started to fall quite a bit now so hopefully there will be some good snow scene photos? The snow has stopped but it is still quite pretty and good enough for a snowball fight -it is embarrassing when you get blamed for the snowball that hit she hotel reception door - Gary!

On the bus, the rain tapped on the wind shield. We passed A-frame houses creviced in the lush green rolling hills of Poland. There were aged trees arched over the narrow winding road we drove down. After several hours we arrived at our destination (although we initially missed it.. we got dropped off at a gas station outside of the city..But hey, we made it!).
