    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.

    In the morning we headed out to the cash machine (they don't call them ATMs here) bakery and grocery store. Once we had breakfast is was time to go to Krakow's Old Town. It is a 15 minute walk from our apartment and we had our trusty map to guide us. Up until 400 years ago Krakow was the capital of Poland. This 13th century merchants town has Europe's largest market square as well as historic houses, lots ...

    ... Jacob. He spoke enthusiastically about Krakow's and Poland's history with a tone that can only be described as defeatist optimism. He kept saying things like "Poland joined forces with Lithuania, which at the time was one of the major super powers of the world...until they joined forces with Poland" and "Nobody can lose as many wars as the Polish have, and still be around" and "Communists use vodka to keep ...

    ... convention. He is ca. 55 and a real wealth of experience and stories. We very much enjoy his stories and anecdotes. Unfortunately, clown skills do not magically make for unbreakable LRs... So 200km before Krakow one of our brand new tires went flat. Such much for getting all the stuff fixed before hand. Upon changing the tire, the first two errors in my spare kit become apparent; missing a 24 nut and my bottle jack ...
