    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.

    ... feels more like eastern Europe than Budapest did. The buildings are a bit older and grimier, the streets are lined with 24 hour alcohol shops and the wealth that one would find in France and Germany is certaily not present. What the people lack in disposable income however, they more than make up for in consonants, making Polish a very difficult language to master, despite the fact that some of it is similar to Russian.

    Much of Poland also pleasantly surprised ...

    ... or whether he extorted money and put people on the list who paid him the most. Also saw the location of the ghetto which has statues of empty chairs. I was told the Jews were given one day to move to the ghetto to be resettled for a better life and to bring their possessions, like furniture and chairs which were confiscated. Off to Auschwitz ...

    ... than the big group/strain to hear type thing. We saw the room of human hair and exhibits of things collected from the camp like shoes, and hair brushes and other everyday items, the amount of these things was staggering. There was also a room full of children's shoes. After touring that part, we went to Birkenhau, just down the road. This place was massive. I think they said there was something like 300 barracks there. Now there is just rows ... education

    ... the road round where you'll see the train. It takes 10 minutes and costs 1.25 each and takes you into Krakow. A few minutes walk and were at Tango House which is really well located.

    Unpacked and went for a wander. You'll never hungry in Krakow as here's loads of places to eat. Debs has wild boar goulash - delicious.
