      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.

      ... out of respect for the victims. The air was heavy, as everyone knew they were standing in the exact spot, and looking at the same walls where these atrocities occurred and thousands of people stood before they were murdered. We then had a quick break and then were taken to the extension of the camp called Birkenau. We stood on the platform where thousands of Jews arrived, unloaded like cattle from the cramped windowless rail cars. Birkenau was designed to hold ...

      So we have now landed in Krakow Poland, a little worse for wear, but with smiles on our faces. I am currently suffering from a cold, and trying to do anything I can to not get Alex sick as well. We had a great adventure to the pharmacy to find some cold and flu drugs (thank god for knowing our drug names or we would have been toast). So after some medicine, and cough drops we were off on our walking ...

I probably could have moved but each time the record skipped it involved me for less than a minute so it wasn't that big of a deal. And I had a nice spot in the sun.

      So at 3:55 I go to ...
