Everything expected of an IBIS chain hotel. Only problem is that the web says close to city centre, however we thought it was out of the way. It does however have WIFI, a large supermarket very close and a tram line giving access to the central city.

I was wide awake at 3am so got on with sorting photos and writing my ???? short ???? notes on our trip – that was never going to happen. Had a couple more hours sleep then it was off to find breakfast at the station (and on the way home we found little bakeries in our street which would have been better that McD's), we repacked and headed for the train at midday.

Gura Kalawarya, Ger, was a prominent Chasidic area, and at the time of World War II there were ...
... to escape the cold and head to a local bar for a couple of rounds of cards before going for dinner at the pub we'd been in the day before - this was turning into a bit of a pub crawl which was evident once we got on the tram. All was going well until the tram lurged round one corner sending mum flying down the tram to head-butt dad in the stomach. It was all I could do afterwards to remain upright I was laughing so much - it was like human skittles! Perhaps she should stick ...
... prepared for any trouble. Luckily it was all peaceful, except for the noise of all the horns. We went to the uni library which had a rooftop garden which had some great views, and had a snack for lunch. We'd been having polish food all the other days so we just had a bit of pasta (spag bog and something with spinach). Was great! And were garlic fresh and reenergised, ready to keep exploring. The city was great - amazing how they've been able to recreate a whole city ...
