      Smoky and "weird guests"

      The hostel itself was ok. The people were nice but the whole place smelled like cigarette smoke. It was explained that in a week the anti-smoking law would go into effect so everyone was going overboard with their smoking, but I don't know.

      Also, I was staying in one of the dorm rooms and I woke up to find a guy touching my forehead. After I sat up and started talking angrily at him, he left the room, and then I went to reception and explained the situation and all she could say to me was "Sometimes we have weird guests." There was no offer to help find the creek that came into the room so that it wouldn't happen again or so it wouldn't happen to someone else. I feel that other hostels would have done more in that situation.

      The Schindler Trail and a Frugo Valentines Day

      ... visited the sight of the Płaszˇw Concentration Camp, it consists primarily of a large green (or white in our case) area with a few memorials dotted around. The largest of which was a huge rock construction at the top of a hill. It felt quite odd. Not the type of odd you feel at Auschwitz, just odd.

      Then it was time for a quick tour of the site of the ghetto. All I remember from that was an Aston Martin. And chairs in the ...

I felt the video was going to be the only way I was going to show this church as it looked. We ended up spending two hours here (we thought it would be like thirty minutes or so).
      When we left, we were ...

      ... state rooms and private apartments, something we didn't realize, so the tickets were all gone. The grounds are quite lovely to stroll though and not extensive at all. We missed the cathedral as it was about to close, but our main goal was to find the dragon statue.

      When we first arrived in Krakow and saw dragons everywhere, we wondered why the dragon was the chief souvenir theme. What could a dragon possibly have to do with Krakow? Well, according to Wikipedia, legend has ...

I was getting a little crusty so Chris left me on a park bench in the rain and he went to find somewhere to stay. He knew he wasn't coming back without a room for us. He was successful! We are in a very quirky, but very awesome bed and breakfast called ...
